Side Child Nutrition

What’s Happening




For many kids, summertime means two things: fun and friends. But when school’s out, that also means that families can’t count on their kids eating meals at school, and already tight family food budgets have to be stretched even further.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally-funded program designed to fill the need and ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.  This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) sites.

Cumberland County Schools Child Nutrition Services (CNS) is a sponsor of SFSP and is contributing to these goals by increasing awareness of the program in Cumberland County.  An astounding 85 percent of the almost 900,000 NC children from economically-challenged families are not accessing meals available through SFSP.  During the summer of 2017, only 7.68% of the children in Cumberland County eligible to receive free or reduced-price meals in school accessed the free meals available through SFSP.  We believe awareness of this program is a significant reason that children who need these meals are not receiving them.

Help us get the word out!

CNS will operate the Summer Feeding Program starting June 11th through July 27th, 2018, at multiple sites throughout Fayetteville and Cumberland County.  Site locations are being finalized and a list of locations will be available by June 1st.  SFSP Facts:

  • Free summer meals for children and teens ages 18 and younger are available at more than 2,500 locations in North Carolina.
  • Parents don’t need to apply to the program to get a free summer meal for their kids.
  • Food served at summer meal sites follows USDA nutrition guidelines and are paid for by the USDA.
  • To locate SFSP free meals:
    • Text “FoodNC” to 877-877
