Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)
During the summer months, Civitan Foundation partners with several sites in the Phoenix metro area and Williams, Arizona, to offer healthy meals, based on USDA nutrition guidelines. Supervised members of Civitan’s culinary program prepare and deliver the food to locations in north Phoenix. Meals served in Williams are prepared at Camp Civitan. Contact Civitan Foundation, Inc. for more information and locations. The SFSP is a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Child Nutrition Program created to provide free meals to low-income children. It is administered by the Arizona Department of Education. In addition to the funding from the USDA, Civitan Foundation received a grant from the Phoenix Suns to help expand and support its Hunger Relief and Transitional Employment program in 2019. Go Suns!
