New guide helps schools serve summer meals

Hunger Free New Jersey just released a new guide designed to help school districts serve meals to more students in the summer.

A new state law requires all schools where at least half of students are low-income to participate in the federal Summer Meals Service Program by 2020.

Despite strong progress on the summer meals front, just 26 percent of children who can benefit received summertime nutrition in 2018.

We encourage school districts and other organizations to use this guide to help them implement effective summer meal programs.
