More Schools, Community Organizations Sought for Summer Food Service Program

Oregon Department of Education Seeks to Increase Sites to Feed Children and Teens this Summer

(Salem, Ore.) – The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) is seeking more schools, community organizations and tribes to participate in Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) this summer to help ensure that children and teens receive the nutritious meals they need during the summer months.

The goal of the SFSP is to ensure children 18 and younger, who benefit from meal programs during the school year, continue to have that same access to nutritious meals when schools are closed, or students are unable to attend school in person. During the pandemic, Oregon has seen record numbers of meals served to children via the Summer Food Service Program.

“Access to summer meals is an important way to ensure that children continue to receive the nutrition they need, to learn and grow, when school is not in session,” said ODE Summer Meals Outreach Coordinator Jessica Visinsky. “The extension of summer meals during the pandemic has provided continuity for families and allowed schools and organizations to provide the support that so many children need.”

It is important to expand the program and close the hunger gap in all areas of the state, and ODE’s Child Nutrition Program is reaching out to ensure that children continue to receive meals throughout the summer.

Apply to Sponsor a Summer Meals Program

Organizations must enter into an agreement with ODE to run USDA Summer Food Service Programs. Schools, non-profit community organizations, local government agencies, camps and faith-based organizations that have the ability to manage a food service program may be SFSP sponsors. Sponsors are reimbursed for serving healthy meals and snacks to children and may manage multiple sites.

Sites are places in the community where children receive meals in a safe and supervised environment. Sites may be located in a variety of settings, including schools, parks, community centers, health clinics, hospitals, libraries, migrant centers, apartment complexes and faith-based locations. Sites work directly with local sponsors.

For information about how to apply for the Summer Food Service Program, please contact The deadline to submit an application to become a Summer Food Service Sponsor is May 14, 2021.


Grant Funding for Sacred Places Historic houses of worship, from prairie churches to urban synagogues, are the bedrocks that continue to sustain us as a people, uniting us in service and celebration. Together, we can protect them for generations to come—apply for a grant from the National Fund for Sacred Places to keep these places as an important part of our national cultural heritage.

The National Fund provides training, planning grants, technical assistance, capacity-building support, and capital grants up to $250,000 to congregations of all faiths for rehabilitation work on their historic facilities.


Congregations are urged to submit their letter of intent by March 15 for the Fund for Sacred Places for projects such as:
