Summer Food Service Program

Stressing the importance of good nutrition, 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 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:
