Free Summer Meals Help Reduce Hunger When School is Out, Report Finds

from Food Research & Action Center

Too many children across the country are missing out on the nutrition they need during the summer months when the school year — and access to school breakfast and lunch — ends, according to a new report released by the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC). Hunger Doesn't Take a Vacation: Summer Nutrition Status Report finds that 2.9 million children, or only 1 in 7 of the low-income children who participated in school lunch during the 2017–2018 school year, received a summer lunch on an average weekday in July 2018. Fourteen states provided summer lunch to fewer than one child for every 10 children who participated in school lunch. Even fewer children — 1.5 million — ate breakfast at a summer meals site in July 2018. more
