Green Mountain Farm-to-School is a participant in the Summer Food Service Program for Children. Funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the program is designed to ensure that children who rely on free or reduced-price meals during the school year continue to have adequate nutrition throughout the summer. In accordance with Federal civil rights law and USDA civil rights regulations and policies, meals will be provided to all children without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

Persons with disabilities who require alternative means of communication for program information (e.g. Braille, large print, audiotape, American Sign Language, etc.), should contact the Agency (State or local) where they applied for benefits. Individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the Federal Relay Service at (800) 877-8339. Additionally, program information may be made available in languages other than English.

To file a program complaint of discrimination, complete the USDA Program Discrimination Complaint form (AD-3027), found online at http://www.ascr.usda.gov/complaint_filing_cust.html and at any USDA office, or write a letter addressed to USDA and provide in the letter all the information requested in the form. To request a copy of the complain form, call (866) 632-9992.
