When children are no longer in school during the summer,
many lose access to the meals they eat through their school meals programs. To remedy this, the Summer Food Service
Program (SFSP) and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), which are run by
local government agencies, nonprofit organizations, or school sponsored
programs, distribute either two meals or a meal and a snack a day. NETWORK
supports continued funding of these programs, which act to serve children
during a time of greatest need.
