Summer Food Service is seeking volunteers. 

     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.

The more sites we have, the more children we can feed!!  You can set up at a church, park, your front yard, or just about anywhere! You can choose to serve breakfast, lunch, snack or supper, as well as selecting a time to serve the meals that fits in with your schedule! All the meals will already be prepared! You will just pick them up from the Logan County Children’s Center.
