SFSP Serves a "Super" Lunch
Our friend was so excited to celebrate his birthday at our Summer Food Service Program meal site. And on Superhero Day to boot! The kids had a blast with their superhero capes, and they got to meet a local fireman from Alpha Fire Company!

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. It is a nation-wide program funded by the USDA and the Department of Education. Local organizations may "sponsor" a program. The Healthy Bodies Project lab funds the largest State College SFSP, as the goals of the program (healthy and nutritious eating) aligns with those of our own. Last summer, we served over 1,500 kids a free and nutritious lunch in various parks and establishments in town.
