AVAILABLE FOOD SERVICES
The National School Lunch Program (SLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to children each school day. The program was established under the National School Lunch Act, signed by President Harry Truman in 1946. 
The School Breakfast Program (SBP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in more than 1,500 public and private nonprofit schools and residential child care institutions in Kansas. Public schools in Kansas are required by state statute to offer the SBP in each public school building under the jurisdiction of the school district’s board of education. *For more information on the SLP and SBP contact Sabrina Torneden, Food Service Representative 
The At-Risk Afterschool Meals Program, formerly referred to as the Area Eligible Program, is a component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and provides reimbursement to institutions that serve nutritious meals and snacks to children in qualified afterschool programs. All children and youth age 18 and under at the start of the school year who attend participating afterschool programs are eligible to receive free meals and snacks. *For more information on the Afterschool Meal Program contact Cindy Tracy, Afterschool Program Coordinator 
The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) became a permanent program as a result of The Food, Conservation and Energy Act of 2008 (Farm Bill). The FFVP provides all children in participating schools with a variety of free fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the school day. It is an effective and creative way of introducing fresh fruits and vegetables as healthy snack options. The FFVP also encourages schools to develop partnerships at the State and local level for support in implementing and operating the program. *For more information on FFVP contact Kim Hefley, School Counselor 
Summer Food Service Program sponsors provide free meals to a group of children at a central site, such as a school or a community center.  They receive payments from USDA, through their State agencies, for the meals they serve to children at eligible sites. Locally, SFSP is run by approved sponsors, including school districts, local government agencies, camps, or private nonprofit organizations.   Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does the need for good nutrition.  The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow, throughout the summer months when they are out of school.
