Map: Free Summer Food Service Sites 2012
Even though school is out for the summer, there are dozens of locations throughout San Antonio giving free breakfasts and lunches to kids and teens. According to a recent report, one in four San Antonio children aren't sure where their next meal will come from.
According to the Texas Department of Agriculture, its Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to ensure that children in low-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. It provides nutritious and free meals to children 18 and younger during the summer months. Last year, the program provided 21,286,726 meals throughout Texas.
The San Antonio Food Bank also offers a summer food service program through Feeding America.
We hope this map will help you find the food service site nearest to you, and that you'll share it with families that may be in need. Eat up!
