Fort Wayne Community Schools is again sponsoring the Summer Food Service Program for Children (SFSPC) providing free meals to all children ages 18 and younger and to adults who are enrolled in a state-approved educational program for the mentally or physically disabled.

The meal program was created to serve nutritious meals to children when National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program meals are not available. To ensure all children receive proper nutrition throughout the year, SFSPC reimburses organizations that prepare and serve meals to eligible children during the summer.

Meals are served Monday through Friday, except Monday, June 20, and Monday, July 4, at 20 sites. Children must be present to receive meals and must eat the meals onsite.

Cold sandwiches and sides will be provided at the following sites:
