USDA announced to feed millions of children this summer

The U.S. Department of Agriculture reported a new effort Monday to feed millions of children this summer. When free school meals customarily reach just a little minority of the kids who depend on them the rest of the year.

The move extends what's known as the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer, or P-EBT, program into the summer months, and USDA estimates it'll reach more than 30 million children. P-EBT takes the value of the meals kids aren't getting at school, around $6.82 per child per weekday.

P-EBT puts it onto a debit card that families can utilize at the grocery store. Families already enlisted in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (once known as food stamps) can have the value set straightforwardly onto their SNAP debit card.

Children are qualified for the new P-EBT summer extension if they are qualified to receive free or low-cost meals during the school year. Children younger than 6 can also qualify if they live in a family that currently gets SNAP benefits. According to USDA, eligible families can anticipate receiving roughly $375 per child to assist them through this summer.
