Summer Food Service Program 2017

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals, that meet Federal Nutrition Guidelines, are provided to all children at approved SFSP Sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children.

 Community Action of Southern Kentucky is participating in the Summer Food Service Program during the months of June and July 2017 and is excited to announce the upcoming Site Supervisor training dates and locations:
