Pandemic SNAP Helped Kids and Must Be Renewed

As the COVID-19  pandemic closed the nation's schools, students who depended on meals at schools struggled. The schools undertook massive efforts to help.  Another big help was Pandemic-EBT a federally-funded, state-administered program that provided additional food money. 

A study just released by the Brookings Institute proves the powerful value of Pandemic EBT.  In the week after each state issued its payments, child hunger fell by about 30 percent, reducing the number of hungry children by at least 2.7 million. Now that this program has been shown to make a huge difference, it clearly needs to be in the next relief bill. At this point, however, it is NOT included in draft legislation in the senate. We know it reduces child hunger and encourage legislators to include this successful program.
