Domestic Food Programs

USDA's Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) administers five child nutrition programs aimed at providing day-care and school age children with nutritious meals and snacks. The National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program are the largest programs in terms of Federal expenditures. Both, however, provide over 93 percent of their meals during the school year. The Special Milk Program provides assistance to summer camps during the summer vacation period; the Child Care Food Program provides continuous meal service throughout the year; and the Summer Food Service Program provides meal service in needy areas during June, July, and August.
