2018 Summer Food Service Program Team Lead
The overall poverty rate for Peoria is 16% according to the Federal Research Impact Center, 23% are children under the age of 18. 68% of our community’s children under the age of 18 are at or below the federal poverty line. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a federally funded, state and locally administered program providing a free meal to any youth during the summer months. Peoria engages this program with the reality that food deserts exist, there are a large number of children eligible for free services due to their household income, and that children home for the summer could drastically increase the household food expenses. We are looking for 5 VISTA Summer Associates to serve our community this summer through this role. These positions are a part of the Housing Action VISTA Network. Housing Action Illinois administers 35 10-week VISTA positions located all throughout Illinois. Learn more by checking out our website.

Member Duties : The local public school district continues service into the summer months and networks with local community organizations to provide daily meals.

To increase program impact we plan to offer more organized activities for youth of all ages that incorporate active lifestyles, healthy utilization of technology; money management, character development, and educational stimulation. The development and implementation of curriculum and guided activities will be essential tasks of the VISTA Summer Associates.
