The mission of The Literacy for Youth Foundation is to ensuring that as many poverty stricken children ages 5 to 18 are fed healthy, nutritious breakfast and lunch's throughout the summer in multiple summer camps & low income area's. We are one of many nonprofits that strive to end hunger and persistent poverty. Our organization in 2014 fed over 500 kids a day all ages breakfast and snacks with help from sponsors and Bright from the Start. Our 2015 goals are loftier this year and we hope to double that amount with breakfast and full lunches.
Summer Food Service Program
The Literacy for Youth Foundation (501c3) has been approved by the USDA and Bright from the Start to become a sponsor for the Summer Food Service Program.
The SFSP is a Federal funded program that reimburses non-profit organizations for healthy meals and snacks served to children in low income areas during periods when schools are closed for vacation. Over 60% of Georgia’s school aged children are eligible for free or reduced lunch. Through the SFSP, these children can receive free meals during the summer when they may not otherwise have access to well- balanced meals.
When school is out, too many families across the state worry about how their children will receive nutritious meals on a daily basis. The SFSP helps fill that gap and contributes to the overall health and well being of our children.
We would like to thank the following sponsors for their support.
