Texas Department of Agriculture

The Texas Department of Agriculture wants a firm to run a statewide media campaign for the federally funded Summer Food Service Program.

SFSP provides free meals during the months when schools are out. It runs from June 1 through August.

The goal of the media push is to increase awareness of SFSP in both urban and rural areas.

The firm also will educate program participants that that the hired food servers are legally obligated to provide breakfast, lunch and/or dinner to all eligible children at the meal sites.

It will use print, digital, radio and PSAs to get the word out about SFSP.

TDOA plans to issue a contract from the day of award to run through 2024. There will be three additional one-year renewal options.

Responses are due Feb. 26. They go to TDOA's e-portal.
