In June, a bipartisan group of senators introduced legislation to make federal child nutrition programs more efficient, flexible, and better equipped to reach children in need during the summer.
For some children, the summer months can lead to food insecurity as they are absent from school and meals aren’t readily accessible. The Hunger-Free Summer for Kids Act of 2019 will add flexibility to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which offers children from low-income families free lunch and snacks in the summer.
We believe that the people of God should be the first to respond to the plight of the world's hungry with a compassion that breaks all barriers.
Ask your Members of Congress to support legislation that removes barriers to healthy, accessible meals for children during the summer.
