MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Children across the Mid-South will have a meal this summer thanks to the Summer Food Service Program.

The program ensures that those students who receive free or reduced price lunch during the school year continue to stay full during the summer months.

According to the Department of Human Services, the program served more than 3.6 million meals last summer at the more than 2,300 meal sites across the country.

“The Summer Food Service Program shows how local, state and federal partners can work together
to make a lasting impact on the well-being of Tennessee’s children,” said TDHS Commissioner
Danielle W. Barnes.
