Partners in Quality Care is a sponsor of the Summer Foods Service Program funded by the USDA. We work with communities providing summer programming to youth of lower-income families.
Our mission is to assist in bridging the summer foods gap to ensure children continue to receive free, healthy, and nutritious meals during the summer months.
Your summer program needs to be in a location where meals can be served. A program can be classified as a camp, open, or closed enrolled. You can serve up to two meals per day: breakfast, lunch/supper, or snack. Partners in Quality Care can provide you with the nutritious meals and snacks that meet the USDA meal pattern requirements.
Does your program qualify….
Here are the three ways to determine if your summer programs can participate on the Summer Foods Service Program:
1. Area Eligible – At least 50 percent of the children enrolled in the local public school are eligible for free/reduced price meals.
2. Census Eligible – Census data identifies the area as low-income.
3. Other Data – This includes the Household Income Statement, local school district determination, public housing data, or American Indian certification.
Partner’s in Quality Care will handle the administrative tasks of the Summer Food Service Program. We will train your staff on the Summer Food Service Program rules and daily tasks to run a successful SFSP program.
We are embarking our 4th summer as a sponsor and are always looking to partner with new communities.
