Summer Food Service Program Best Practices Tool
Findings from the Northeast Collaboration to Reduce Hunger and Improve Nutrition

We are pleased to share our online SFSP Best Practices Tool with you! This resource is the result of an initiative funded by the UPS Foundation called the Northeast Collaboration to Reduce Hunger and Improve Nutrition. This project was intended to increase participation in the Summer Food Service Program within four participating statesConnecticut, Massachusetts, New York, and Vermont. The SFSP Best Practices Tool highlights the strategies and lessons learned from this initiative and addresses the following categories:

Visitors to the NERAHN website will be able to identify best practices for each of these categories, read community examples of how the best practices were implemented in participating states, download sample materials that can be adapted for use in other communities around the country, and learn the results of the UPS Project.

If you would like more information about the SFSP advocacy work that was done in a particular state, please refer to the organizational profiles and contact information provided.

The Northeast Regional Anti-Hunger Network serves as the coalition of anti-hunger agencies from the seven states in the United States Department of Agriculture's Northeast region (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut). NERAHN was created in 1996 with a two-fold mission:

  1. to reduce hunger by maximizing resources through collaborative efforts; and
  2. to work collectively to design and implement action on state, regional and national levels.
