Ensuring a high quality educational experience and skills relevant to the 21st century
Cindy Thesing - Nutrition Services Supervisor, (608) 366-3405,
Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to
children during the summer months, the Sparta Area School District
announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.
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 meals 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
meals this summer:
