Intrinsic Foundation teams up with the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) during the summer months when healthy meals are not accessible to many children. We provide programs and meals to eliminate the nutritional gap and give the youth the essential elements needed to LEARN, PLAY and GROW for a successful life.
The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was created to ensure that children in low-income areas could continue to receive nutritious meals during long school vacations, when they do not have access to school lunch or breakfast. It provides nutritious and free meals to children 18 and younger during the summer months.
According to SFSP statistics 3 million children in Texas are eligible to receive meals and last year only about 266,895 children were fed. Some of the effects from not eating healthy or not eating at all affect children in different ways, such as physically, emotionally, and developmentally. Eating healthy during the summer months, keeps children mentally engaged so that they return to school ready to learn.
