Program Information for 2019

What is the Summer Food Service Program?

The Summer Food Service Program, also known as the Summer Meals Program, was established to ensure that children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. When school is out, SFSP provides free meals to kids and teens in areas of need throughout the community. This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under at approved SFSP sites.  BSD approved sites are at eligible schools, apartment complexes, recreation centers, and apartment complexes within the Beaverton School District boundary.

Who is eligible for a free meal this summer?

All children, ages 1 through 18 years, are eligible to enjoy a nutritious breakfast and lunch when the summer food program is in session. There is no application or registration required. There are also no requirements that children be enrolled in the district’s summer school program.  All children from the community, not enrolled in the Beaverton School District, are welcome to participate. 

What are the program guidelines for participants?

  • All meals should be consumed onsite.
  • Only non-perishable foods may be taken off site, in the event that this portion of the meal could not be consumed during the meal time. (ex: Whole apple, packaged crackers etc)
  • Because this is a federally funded program for children, the meal should not be consumed by any adult. 
  • We do offer adult meals at a reduced cost for those wanting to participate.
  • Bring your friends and family!
  • HAVE FUN!​

What is an "After-School Supper Program?"

Oregon is one of a few pilot states that serves free meals and snacks through the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). CACFP After-School Meals give a nutritional boost to children, including teenagers through age 18, in eligible afterschool programs in lower income areas in every state.  Afterschool programs that serve meals, draw children and teenagers into constructive activities that are safe, fun, and filled with opportunities for learning. The food gives them the nutrition they need to learn and grow.  When school is out and parents are still at work, children need a safe place to be with their friends, with structured activities, and supportive adults. 

Who is eligible for after-school meals?

  • After School Meals are served at no charge to all children attending a qualified school and eligible to participate in organized, regularly scheduled after school education, or enrichment activities. 
  • Please Note:  Children DO NOT have to be enrolled in the club or activity in order to receive a meal.
  • There are no application forms for parents or guardians to fill out. All after-school meals and snacks are served in group settings, at no cost to the child or to the child's parents or guardians.

Farm to School

We are proud to serve Oregon Grown Products in our cafeterias.

Nutrition Services is committed to purchasing local food items from Oregon and Washington in an effort to ensure better overall food quality with increased nutritional benefits.  Last school year, we spent a good chunk of change on local purchases; $1,096,335.00 to be exact. 

We believe that our local purchases have helped to stimulate the local and regional economies, and have improved our student's health and nutrition by increasing the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables purchased from area farmers.  The quality has been superb!
