The summer food service program (SFSP) grant has been utilized by the Hapeville Recreation Center for the past 7 years. The SFSP grant allows the City to serve food at no charge to children that attend summer camp, as well as children from around the Hapeville area. The Recreation Center serves breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday for all children under the age of 18, as well as adults with disabilities 19 and older. They serve breakfast from 8AM to 9AM and lunch from 12PM to 1PM and each meal consists of major food components like fruits and vegetables and milk.
This is a great program for kids and adults to utilize in Hapeville and the center is looking to have this approved so they may once again use the SFSP grant during the summer months. This will be a non-matching grant. In prior years this grant has been approximately $16,000.
Recreation staff nominates Ashley Moody as the Delegated Principal for the summer of 2019.
