Summer Food Service Program

During the school year a large number of children receive free and reduced-priced meals through their school meal programs. However, when the school year ends food insecurity becomes prevalent amongst families with school aged children. The Summer Food Service Program helps alleviate the nutritional gap and makes meals accessible to all children through 18 years of age.

Catholic Charities sponsors, with the support of the First United Presbyterian Church of Oneonta (the Red Door Church), the Summer Food Service Program in Neawha Park in the City of Oneonta. This site is open to ALL children through the age of 18. Lunches are served Monday - Friday from 12:00 - 1:00 pm during the months of July and August. There are no income requirements and no information will be collected from those being served.

The following organizations have helped to fund the Summer Food Service Program:

Also, enrichment activities are offered at the SFSP, including:


Volunteer opportunities exist for this program.  Please see the volunteer page for more information.
