CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - The Wyoming Summer Food Service program for kids offered through the Wyoming Department of Education served thousands of meals last summer to Wyoming children and teens.

The Summer Food Service Program is a federally funded, state-administered program. The program reimburses providers who serve free healthy meals to children and teens during the summer months when school is not in session. This video from the Department of Agriculture does a good job of explaining the program. In addition to serving food, summer food sites often include activities for students to do during the summer including crafts and games.

If you are interested in being a serving site, contact Amanda Anderson at the WDE at 307-777-7168 or amanda.anderson@wyo.gov.
