How do summer feeding programs help end childhood hunger?
Many at-risk children receive access to food through federal feeding programs, however, the need for food increases during the summer months. About 80% of the low-income children who receive school lunches do not receive school meals in the summer season. Summer feeding programs help to identify those children in need and bridge the gap during summertime by keeping them nourished and allowing them to return to school healthy and ready to learn.
