data.texas.gov | Last Updated 10 Jul 2019

<b>About the Agency</b><br> The Texas Department of Agriculture administers 12 U.S. Department of Agriculture nutrition programs in Texas including the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs and the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). TDA’s Food and Nutrition division provides technical assistance and training resources to partners operating the programs and oversees the USDA reimbursements they receive to cover part of the cost associated with serving food in their facilities. By working to ensure these partners serve nutritious meals and snacks, the division adheres to its mission — <i>Feeding the Hungry and Promoting Healthy Lifestyles.</i><p> <i><b>For more information on these programs, please visit our <a href=http://www.SquareMeals.org target="_blank">website</a>.</b></i><p> <b>About the Dataset</b><br> This dataset contains <b>contact and program participation information for each site participating in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for summer 2018 (SNP program year 2017-2018).</b> Summer meals programs operate mid-May through the end of August. <p> For data on sites participating in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), please refer to the Summer Feeding Programs – Summer Feeding Program (SFSP) – Contact and Program Participation datasets available on the State of Texas Open Data Portal. <p> <b>About Dataset Updates</b><br> TDA aims to post new program year data by July 15 of the active program period. Due to the short duration of the summer feeding programs, dataset updates will occur monthly until 90 days after the close of the program period. After 90 days from the close of the program period, the dataset will be updated at six months and one year from the close of program period before becoming archived. Archived datasets will remain published but will not be updated. Any data posted during the active program year is subject to change.
