County also has 47 "enrolled" sites, where only children enrolled in
the summer program can participate. The Summer Food Service Program for
children is a federally-funded program operated nationally by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture and administered by the Florida Department of
Education. The program was established to ensure that children in needy areas
could continue to receive nutritious meals during school vacations that are comparable
to those served under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs
during the school year.
