Georgia's Seamless Summer Option For Kids
The Seamless Summer Option (SSO) feeding program allows school food authorities (SFAs) to provide free summer meals in low income areas during the traditional summer vacation periods and, for year-round schools, during school vacation periods longer than 15 school days. This option combines features of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) to provide nutritious meals to children under the age of 19 free of charge during designated time periods.

Henry County Schools Seamless Summer Feeding Program Plans Shared for 2020
HENRY COUNTY, GA – Starting Wednesday, May 20, children in Henry County will be able to pick up meals at the same six distribution sites during the regular 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. window. The sites remain Hampton Middle, Locust Grove Elementary, McDonough Middle, Oakland Elementary, Stockbridge Middle, and Wesley Lakes Elementary.
With operations moving to one day of service, that means that students will receive 10 meals – five breakfasts and five lunches – to cover the weekdays until they return the following Wednesday.
The summer feeding program operates in conjunction with the US Department of Agriculture and the Georgia School Nutrition Program. Meals are free for children up to 18 years of age. Individuals with special needs up to 21 years of age may also receive the meals.
As a part of the requirements for participation in the summer feeding programs, students must be in the vehicle when arriving to the distribution sites.
