Program Requirements & Guidance


Use Outreach to increase participation in your Summer Food Service Program.

Did you know? All schools are required to conduct some form of outreach for nearby summer food sites before the end of the school year. Work closely with your school district to make sure kids and families know about your site.

Outreach can be as simple as putting a link to the Montana Summer Food Map in your May School Newsletter.
