NI Food Bank provides summer meals for children at risk of hunger

Staff Report 

Northern Illinois Food Bank announced its participation in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), designed to fill the gap during summer for children who received free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch during the school year.

Free meals, which meet SFSP federal guidelines, will be made available to children 18 years of age and under, and to persons over age 18 who are enrolled in a state-approved educational program for the mentally or physically disabled at participating sites across Northern Illinois.

Last year, sites sponsored by Northern Illinois Food Bank provided 288,929 summer meals to children in need. Individual program site days/hours vary.

For further information about the Northern Illinois Food Bank’s program, contact Jessica Willis at 630-443-6910 or visit their website.
