When school is out for summer, don’t let 21 million children who receive free or reduced-price meals go hungry. Pediatricians can link families with local resources for summer meals.
The Summer Food Service Program and Seamless Summer Option of the National School Lunch Program are federally funded, state-administered programs that provide meals to children in low-income areas when school is not in session.
