Time: 12:00pm – 1:00pm EST

Registration Link: http://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/17fb9g48fe7

Description: Each summer, 22.3 million students are at risk of going hungry when the school year ends and school lunches are no longer available.  For many children, school meals are the only complete and nutritious meals they eat, and in the summer they go without.  This summer, the need will likely increase. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) 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.

Join us to learn more about how you can help and hear the benefits to being a part of the Summer Food Service Program!
