NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee is participating in the Summer Food Service Program that will provide school children with meals when they otherwise may not have them during the summer months.

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to children from low-income areas so that they can get the nutrition they need while they are out of school.

Many children in Tennessee who qualify for free and reduced lunch, cannot be helped by summer programs like the SFSP. This means they simply go hungry when school is not in session and the mission of all those involved with this initiative is to make this not the case.

Meals will be provided to children without charge at many locations across Middle Tennessee this summer.
