The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will provide food access for students during the 2024 summer break. The Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer (Summer-EBT) program was created by the federal Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2023 to provide school aged children who are income eligible for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) with an additional source of nutrition during the summer months when children are not in school to receive school meals.  The total Summer-EBT benefit is set by federal law at $40 per month per eligible child to cover the three summer months of June, July, and August.
