USDA Briefing on New Tools to Combat Summer Hunger

USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) Senior Advisor for External Engagement Alberto González and FNS staff briefed NCSL members on two new tools to fight child hunger when schools are closed for the summer: the non-congregate summer meal option for rural communities and the Summer EBT program. The briefing covered updates on these new options, including recent federal guidance, and how state legislatures can support successful implementation to better meet the nutritional needs of children during the summer months.
