Extended Day Federal Funding Summer Learning Childhood Nutrition

Nourish minds and bodies through support of the Summer Meals Act

Strengthen the Summer Food and Afterschool Meals programs in Child Nutrition Reauthorization

Hunger doesn't take a summer vacation. When the long summer recess begins, millions of low-income children lose access to the school breakfasts and lunches they rely on during the school year. The Summer Nutrition Programs are designed to fill that gap – and we need your help to make these good programs better. Email your Members of Congress and ask them to co-sponsor the bipartisan Summer Meals Act of 2015 (S. 613 / H.R. 1728), introduced by Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Representatives Don Young (R-AK) and Rick Larsen (D-WA). The bill would strengthen, protect, and expand access to the Summer Nutrition Programs. It would make long-overdue improvements that would enable the Summer Nutrition Programs to serve even more children.
