USDA announces new effort funded by the American Rescue Plan

May 25, 2021

USDA announced on April 26th a new effort funded by the American Rescue Plan to provide adequate nutrition to more than 30 million children over the summer by expanding Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) benefits. This summer, USDA will offer P-EBT benefits to all low-income children of all ages.

Summer months are difficult for low-income children because they lack access to school meals that fill a nutrition gap during the school year.  When school is out of session, summer feeding programs—like ones we run—reach just a small fraction, typically less than 20%, of the number served during the school year.
