Innovations to Expand Access to Summer Meals in Hard-to-Reach Communities

Each year schools, nonprofits, and community centers seek new opportunities to provide much-needed summer nutrition to kids through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). While program sponsors work actively to add new sites, the number of summer meals served nationwide continues to decline. The impact of this decline is magnified in rural places, where transportation and the high cost of personal car ownership create additional barriers for program participation. This webinar will highlight new, creative approaches that sponsors have taken to expand access to summer meals in these communities that are allowable under current regulation. Whether it is bringing meals directly to where kids like to hang out or changing a menu to align with mainstream models, this webinar will you leave you with a new idea to test and the inspiration needed for a successful summer.
