Fun Safe Philly Summer (FSPS)
In 2011, then Mayor Michael A. Nutter launched Fun Safe Philly Summer to provide Philadelphia youth with summer programming and opportunities to stay active throughout the school holiday. In partnership with the Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, the Mayor's Office also recruited AmeriCorps VISTA Summer Associates to perform direct outreach and increase awareness of the summer meals program in targeted high-need neighborhoods. As a result of FSPS’s work with citywide partners, more than 4 million meals were served to Philadelphia youth during the summer of 2014, up 46% from its inaugural year in 2011.
