Ensuring a high quality educational experience and skills relevant to the 21st century
Stressing the importance of good nutrition, the Sparta Area
School District announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the
Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious
meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced price
school meals are unavailable. Free meals will be made
available to all children who are 1 year old to 18 years old in the
Sparta Area School District. A person over the age of 18
years who is determined by a state or local public educational
agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also
participates in a public or private non-profit school program
during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.
"This program fills a void created when school lunches are not
available," said Cindy Thesing, Nutrition Services
Supervisor. "Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of
their children is the strength of this program."
The following locations will be serving FREE
breakfast and FREE lunch meals this summer:
