Summer Food Service Program
The goal of the federally-funded summer food service program (SFSP), as administered by the Division of Housing and Community Development, is to serve nutritious lunches, and snacks to lower income children in Marietta and Cobb County.
This program is designed to take the place of the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs during the summer vacation period so that an important source of nutritious meals for many low-income children is not lost. Meals are provided to eligible children at no cost in needy neighborhoods across the county without regard to race color, national origin, sex, age, or handicap.
Generally, 20 sites handle more than 1,150 meals daily throughout Cobb County. This U.S. Department of Agriculture program is administered statewide by the Office of School Readiness (OSR) through sponsors at the local level such as the city of Marietta. Questions about the program may also be directed to OSR at 404-656-6411.
