Children need healthy food all year long. During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through their school meals programs. But when school lets out many of these children are at risk of hunger, which can hinder the learning process.
USDA's Summer Food Service Program addresses hunger [or food insecurity] by ensuring that children 18 years of age and below receive nutritious meals even when school is out.
