6 Broadcaster Press February 5, 2019 www.broadcasteronline.com Summer Food Service Program Seeking South Dakota Chamber's Business Day At The Sponsors To Serve Communities PIERRE, S.D. - In an effort to fend off hunger, the South Dakota Department of Education’s office of Child and Adult Nutrition Services is seeking sponsors for a federally-funded program that provides nutritious meals and snacks to children in low-income areas during the summer months. Community organizations, nonprofits, schools, tribal and local governments can apply to be sponsors if they operate in low-income areas, serve a group of mostly low-income children or operate a summer camp with a high proportion of low-income participants. Parks and recreation departments, city and county health departments, libraries and neighborhood service agencies can participate as sites or sponsors. “Those who step forward as sponsors make a big impact for families by ensuring kids have access to nutritious meals even when school isn’t in session,” said Julie McCord, program specialist with South Dakota’s Child and Adult Nutrition Services. “Last summer, slightly fewer meals were served in our state. However, we know the need has not decreased, so we hope to see numbers go back up this year.” When school is in session, 61,428 South Dakota students receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch Program. The Summer Food Service Program is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered by the South Dakota Department of Education. It provides meals to students when school is not in session. Children age 18 and younger may receive a meal free of charge at a participating site. In 2018, South Dakota Summer Food Service Program sponsors served 516,186 meals. That is a decrease from the 523,239 meals served in 2017. Summer food program sites must be in the attendance area of a school where 50 percent or more of students are eligible for free or reduced-price meals, or within the boundary of a U.S. Census block where at least 50 percent of children are eligible for free and reduced-price meals when at school. A site meeting those criteria is open to all children under age 18 with special considerations for children from migrant households or those with a disability. It is important to note that while some areas may not qualify with school data, such areas may still be able to qualify using census data. To determine eligibility in your area, see http://www.fns.usda. gov/sfsp/mapping-tools-summer-mealprograms. Organizations interested in reviewing sponsor responsibilities are invited to watch the Summer Food Service Program Overview on the South Dakota Department of Education’s Summer Food Service Program webpage. To learn more about serving as a sponsor or site, call Child and Adult Nutrition Services at 605-7733413. For more information and to register for training, go to http://doe. sd.gov/cans/sfsp.aspx. The deadline to register for training is Friday, Feb. 22. Sponsors are often looking for partners to help provide activities and educational programs to encourage continued student participation throughout the summer. School food authorities also have the option to utilize the Seamless Summer Option to provide meals in the summer. Information on that option can also be obtained from South Dakota’s Child and Adult Nutrition Services office.
