ProgramsDescription

Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)

The Summer Food Service Program is a Federally-funded initiative that provides healthy meals to children and teens in economically disadvantaged areas when school is not in session.

Seamless Summer Option (SSO)

The Seamless Summer Option (SSO) program is approved and monitored by the N.C. Department of Public Instruction School Nutrition Services that is designed to encourage more School Food Authorities (SFAs) to provide meals to children during summer and other school vacation periods.

Continuation of National School Lunch Program (NSLP)

Continuation of NSLP is a program designed to allow SFAs to continue operating (serving meals) under the National School Lunch Program for students that are required to return to school after the school year has ended (or track out period for year round schools) for academic instruction.
