Media Release - Summer Food Service Program
Emergency Meals Sites


Stressing the importance of offering nutritious meals to children during the closure of schools and many daycares as well as during the summer months, the Milwaukee Center for Independence (MCFI) announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food Service Program.
 
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and is administered by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, provides nutritious meals to children during the summer, when free and reduced-price school meals are typically unavailable.  This program has been allowed to open as an emergency feeding program since schools or daycare centers are closed due to the COVID-19 virus. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and under.  Persons over 18 years of age who are determined by a state or local public educational agency to be mentally or physically disabled and who also participate in a public or private non-profit school program during the regular school year may receive free meals as well.
 
Risen Savior Lutheran School Main Campus: 9550 W. Brown Deer Road Milwaukee, WI and East Campus: 3909 W. Clinton Ave. Milwaukee, WI will be serving the free meals through December 31, 2020.   Meals are provided to eligible children regardless of race, color, national origin, age, gender or disability and there will be no discrimination in the course of meal service. For more information contact our office at (414) 354-7320.
 
“This program fills a void created when school lunches are not available,” said Heidi Chada,Vice  President of Employment and Commercial Services for MCFI.  “Helping parents meet the nutritional needs of their children, especially in these difficult times, is the strength of this program.”
