School’s Out For Summer! Partnering Up to Feed Hungry Kid

Monday, May 19, 2014 | 2 p.m. ET/ 1 p.m. CT/  Noon MT/ 11 a.m. PT

Twenty-one million children rely on free and reduced school meals during the academic year. Only one out of six of these kids participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which addresses food insecurity among children and youth during the summer months when they are out of school.

This webinar features insights and perspectives from USDA, as this is one of their major priorities in 2014, and the Texas Hunger Initiative as an active stakeholder. The panelists will share their thoughts on how state legislators can come to the table and be active participants in improving the effectiveness of the program along with addressing state specific barriers that they are seeing on the ground in their districts.


  • Senator Renee Unterman, Georgia  and Representative Dwight Evans, Pennsylvania, co-chairs of the NCSL Hunger Partnership


  • Audrey Rowe, administrator for the USDA Food and Nutrition Service 
  • Kathy Webb, Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance
  • Jeremy Everett, director of Texas Hunger Initiative
