Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. New Jersey 's Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.
It’s important that parents and guardians know where summer sites in their neighborhoods are located so that they can get these healthy, free meals to their children. To find out the SFSP site nearest you, call the National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3-Hungry or 1-877-8-HAMBRE. It’s a free call, available in both English and Spanish, and is available from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Eastern Time. Or, text Food to 877-877.
In Somerset County , SFSP sites have been set up in Bound Brook, North Plainfield and Somerset ( Franklin Township ). Visit http://www.nj.gov/agriculture/divisions/fn/childadult/summer_food.html for more information.
