USDA FNS 2012 Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) Introductory Webinar
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Summer Food Service Program can help to fill the summer meal gap for low-income children. Faith-based, community and private non-profit organizations can make a difference in the lives of hungry children by serving meals with SFSP, a federally funded program administered by states that reimburses organizations for meals served to children during the summer. USDA FNS will be providing webinar sessions, including an overview of the SFSP, resources and tools available to help get started with the SFSP, successful outreach practices and tips, and how to get involved.
Session Description: This webinar session is designed to provide a high level overview of the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Following the overview of the SFSP, the session will cover resources and tools available to help get started with the SFSP, successful outreach practices and tips, next steps and how to get involved, and then the session will open for questions and answers with USDA FNS staff.
