Mangano: Food Services Program To Provide Children With 62,000 Free Lunches This Summer

County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced that the Nassau Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) - administered by the Department of Social Services (DSS) and funded by New York State Department of Education - will begin July 5th and end August 18th. In 2017 the County expects to serve approximately 62,300 lunches to 2,525 children at 30 community sites during the months of July and August.

County Executive Mangano stated, “The Summer Food Service Program ensures children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Together, we are making sure no child goes hungry this summer in Nassau County.”

Lunch meals are provided to all eligible children 18 years and under without charge, and acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. The menu has been changed and includes natural juices. Nassau County receives reimbursement from the Federal government to cover administrative and operating costs of serving free lunches meeting USDA nutritional requirements to eligible children at 30 community sites within Nassau County. All eligible sites are monitored regularly by SFSP seasonal staff, including a Program Administrator and Director. In addition, sanitarians from the Nassau County Department of Health are involved in the inspections of the lunch sites and ensuring safety of the food provided to the youth participating in the programs. Eligible children must reside in areas in which one half or more of the children are from households with income at or below the eligibility level for free and reduced price school meals, or 185% of the Federal poverty guideline.
