USDA Announces Summer Nutrition Programs

On May 21, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a new suite of summer nutrition programs to help tackle hunger and improve healthy eating for millions of children. Through the suite of SUN Programs (Summer Nutrition Programs), families now have more choices and convenient ways to get summer nutrition support for their children and teens with new SUN Bucks, SUN Meals, and previously launched SUN Meals To-Go. These programs offer free summer meals for kids 18 and under and new grocery benefits for eligible school-aged kids.
