Food Service Program
Children need good food all year
long, even when they're not in school. Omaha Public Schools proudly
sponsors the Summer Food Service Program, providing over 300,000 healthy meals
to children 1-18 years old, free of charge each summer.
Thanks to the Federally funded
program (SFSP), children get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow
during vacation when they do not eat at school. Summer meals act as an
extra "magnet" to draw children to activities and activities draw
children to nutritional meals.
