School Breakfast Program (SBP) Outreach
SFAs must inform families of the availability of reimbursable breakfasts served under the School Breakfast Program (SBP) at the beginning and throughout the school year. The goal of providing school breakfast outreach is to increase participation in the SBP. Access the School Nutrition Outreach Toolkit through DPI Team Nutrition.
Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) Outreach
All SFAs are required to inform households before the end of the school year of the availability and location of meals offered through the SFSP. Outreach for SFSP must be completed by all SFAs regardless of whether SFSP is offered by the SFA itself.
Acceptable outreach activities inform families about the availability and location of summer meals prior to the end of the school year. SFAs distribute information through means normally used to communicate with households of enrolled children. This may include newsletters, automatic calling and texting services, email, or mailings.
SFAs can inform families of summer meals by promoting the following:
- Access the Summer Meals Site Finder on the Find a Summer Meals Site webpage
- Call 211 to locate meals in the area
- Text "food" (in English or Spanish) to 304-304
- Visit the Summer Food Service Program webpage
Additional information can be found on the Administrative Review webpage and the SFSP Outreach Materials webpage. SFAs may also use ready-made promotional materials found within the Summer Meals Outreach Toolkit developed by No Kid Hungry.
