The University of the South’s Office of Civic Engagement and McClurg Dining Hall in partnership with the South Cumberland Community Fund recently announced their sponsorship of the 2018 Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). The SFSP program is administered in Tennessee by the Department of Human Services under an agreement with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Popularly known as the South Cumberland Summer Meal Program, the meal sessions will begin June 4, and end July 27. Meals will be provided to all children without charge. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
If your organization is interested in becoming a meal site, or for more information, email sfpvista@gmail.com. Summer reading, sports and enrichment programs, vacation bible schools, libraries and others are encouraged to partner with the program.
All partner sites must be within a 45-minute drive from the University of the South. If you are a partner site, or would like to become one, USDA requires mandatory attendance at one of the following information and training sessions held on University of the South’s campus:
