Summer Food Service Program

Seamless Summer Option

Continuation of NSLP

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.

The Seamless Summer Option 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 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.
