Summer Food Program


2012 Summer Food Service Program LogoThe Summer Food Program serves children in low-income communities who participate in free and reduced feeding programs during the school year. Since these programs end when school does, the Summer Food Service Program helps fill that hunger gap ensuring that children continue to receive nutritious meals during the summer.

The Summer Food Program also provides supervised activities that are safe, fun, and filled with nutrition education opportunities. Children benefit nutritionally by receiving well-rounded meals while parents are able to stretch their food dollars further.

In 2015, the East Texas Food Bank provided over 129,000 meals to children thru the Summer Food Program at 70 sites.

Proper nutrition is vital to the growth and development of children, particularly for low-income children.
