Subject: Migrant Site Eligibility Determinations

Reference: United States Department of Agriculture Memo Code SFSP 04-2007

This Management Bulletin (MB) provides clarification regarding Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) sponsors using migrant eligibility to qualify open or restricted-open meal service sites.

Sponsors may use migrant eligibility in lieu of area eligibility to establish open or restricted-open meal service sites as defined by SFSP regulations, Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 225.2.

The following principles apply:

  • The eligibility of a migrant open or restricted-open site is based on a determination that the site predominantly serves the children of migrant workers. The SFSP at this type of site is also available to any child wishing to receive a meal without any type of enrollment.
  • The determination must be from a migrant organization that states the site predominantly serves the children of migrant workers.
  • Open and restricted-open sites that are established based on information from migrant organizations must annually provide redetermination.

If you have any questions regarding this MB, please contact Melissa Garza, SFSP Program Specialist, at 916-322-5885 or 800-952-5609, or via e-mail at
