Pandemic EBT – Summer 2021 | Hear What They’re Saying

Originally published on U.S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE.

“Children of all ages need nutritious meals year-round to stay healthy and thrive. Unfortunately, every summer I
meet families in my clinic struggling to afford food when their children are out of school. Access to meals is the best
treatment for summer hunger. Summer P-EBT will ensure families across our country are able to afford the food
their children need for healthy development.”
