School’s out for the summer! But millions of low-income children may have more reason to worry than celebrate without the guarantee of receiving at least one daily nutritious meal that school lunch programs provide.
Two new bills are pending right now that would strengthen and expand access to summer meal programs and help low-income families purchase groceries during the summer months while children are out of school. We need your help to make sure these bills pass through Congress.
