Our nation’s children have been hit especially hard during the pandemic. Thirteen million children, 1 in 6, are projected to face food insecurity in 2021, according to Feeding America. Essential programs that address child hunger, although continuing to operate, expired in 2015. The time to strengthen and protect these programs and our children’s future is long overdue.
Urge Congress to provide universal free school meals, expand Summer EBT nationwide, improve WIC benefits, and expand farm to school programs.
