Summer Lunch Program

Amarillo’s free Summer Food Service Program (Summer Lunch) runs approximately two months from early June to early August.  Through U.S. taxpayer support of the United States Department of Agriculture, free and reduced meals are provided year-round to children of low- and moderate-income families.  The SFSP in Texas is administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Hunger is a roadblock to the learning process.  During the school year in Amarillo, 17,000 children daily receive free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs.  The lack of healthy food during the summer months may impact school performance throughout the year.  Hunger or inadequate nutrition also may make children more prone to illness and other health issues. The Summer Food Service Program is designed to fill that nutrition gap.

71,433 free summer lunches were served to Amarillo children Summer 2010.
