The SFSP is a federally-funded childhood nutrition program administered locally by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE). Anyone 18 years old or younger can come and eat for free at open SFSP sites.

Lunch will be served at 12:00 Noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Accomac and at 12:00 Noon on Mondays and Wednesdays in Nassawadox. The program runs in conjunction with the Summer Reading Program from June 24 through August 18. Please note the libraries are closed on July 4 and July 24, so lunch will not be available on those days. Check the online calendar for more information.

Libraries are a great resource for children during the summer. They provide safe places for children to learn, read, and play with friends and family. Summer reading programs at public libraries promote literacy and encourage children to rack up those reading minutes even when school is out of session. The program is helping to ensure children on the Shore have all the brain power they need to learn and read over the summer and succeed during the upcoming school year.

If interested in finding more SFSP sites near you where children can access healthy meals all summer long, text FOOD to 877-877 during the Summer.
