During the month of April, SESLOC sponsored an awareness event, Feeding Young Minds & Bodies for the Food Bank's Lovin' Lunchbox program. The event collected $6,800. The first 1,500 participants who donated received a reusable grocery bag. Thank you SESLOC for supporting our program. With every dollar we can provide 7 nutritious meals.
Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children in low-income get the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow during the summer months. SFSP is administered by the Food and Nutrition Service, an agency of the USDA. We continue to focus on the development of this program. This year we anticipate having 7 sites throughout the county working with YMCA, the Boys & Girls Club and other organizations. Our goal for 2013 is to expand to south county and outlying areas such as San Miguel, Carissa Plains and San Simeon.
