I support the Stop Child Summer Hunger Act!

During the school year, more than 350,000 children rely on free- or reduced-price breakfast, lunch, and snacks at school in Washington State. Each summer, however, many of these children go hungry. Even though many communities participate in the Summer Food Service Program, providing meals and snacks, many families face challenges accessing these programs.

Senator Murray just announced an exciting proposal, the Stop Child Summer Hunger Act, which would provide families with children who receive free- or reduced-price meals an electronic benefit card (EBT) to help purchase needed food during summer months. This approach reduces challenges to getting to summer meal sites, limited meal distribution hours, unfamiliarity with site locations while improving access to culturally appropriate foods.

If you support feeding more children during the summer, please add your name to the list now.

By signing I agree to let Food Lifeline and Senator Murray include my name on a list of supporters.

I am joining the numerous individuals and community organizations in support of the Stop Child Summer Hunger Act and Senator Murray’s efforts to end child hunger in Washington state. No child should have to go hungry, and by reducing the barrier to accessing food in the summer more kids will get the food they need when they need it.
