USDA Summer Food Programs

Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child's need for good nutrition. The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and snacks to help children in low-income areas get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.

The Food and Nutrition Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, administers SFSP at the federal level. State education agencies administer the program in most states.

KSD is a site that will be serving lunch from 12-12:30 pm June 1st through July 1, 2016. No proof of income is needed for you to walk into the lunch room. Click on the apple to the right to find the serving site closest to where you live.

KCUR Show about Deaf Culture and Cochlear Implants

KCUR, the local NPR station in Kansas City, aired a show about deaf culture and cochlear implants on its Central Standard program. The panelists included Katie Locus, an English teacher at KSD; Bridgette Polson, a mother who opted not to have cochlear implant surgery for her daughter; and Rob Jefferson, a late-deafened adult who benefits from the cochlear implants he received several years ago.

A video of the program can be seen at: http://kcur.org/post/senses

Central Standard is hosted by Gina Kaufmann and produced by Matthew Long-Middleton.
