Healthy Summer Nutrition Lunch Program

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Business The Chicago Department of Family and Support Services (DFSS) is in preparation for the 2011 Healthy Summer Nutrition Lunch Program. This Program is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and administered by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). DFSS serves as the sponsor for the City of Chicago. The Department encourages organizations to get involved this summer and become a summer nutrition host site. As a host site, your agency will be able to receive free daily meals for children and teens up to the age of 18 on a daily basis. All meals served meet USDA Nutritional Guidelines. The most common types of DFSS host sites are the following:

  • Open Site: Offers children in the community a meal without being enrolled in the program’s activities
  • Enrolled Site: Offers meals to children enrolled in the program’s activities
  • Camp Site: Offers children a regularly scheduled food service as part of the day camp program
  • If you are interested in being a part of this year’s summer nutrition program, please contact Diamond Ingram at 312-743-0300 or visit
