Summer Food Service Program

Yuma School District One is working to make sure that no children in our community go hungry when school is done for the summer.

Over 29,000 children in Yuma County receive free or reduced price meals during the school year, but many of these children do not get enough to eat when school gets out.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that all children continue to grow and learn during the summer by making food readily available.
