Celebrating Summer EBT: Thank Your Governor


This summer has the power to be a transformative year for millions of kids across the country. As states and communities begin implementing traditional summer meals as well as new programs like rural non-congregate meals and Summer EBT, more nutritious meals will be available to millions of kids this year.

While all of these programs work together to close the long-standing summer hunger gap, we have an important opportunity right now to continue the momentum for Summer EBT. As your state plans and prepares to implement Summer EBT for the first time ever, please consider extending your excitement and gratitude to your Governor for making this important investment towards ending summer hunger.

Personalizing your letter below will go further. To make your message more effective, please share why it’s important to you to support families and kids in your community.

Thank you for helping feed kids this summer

Dear [Decision Maker],

For too long, summer has been the hungriest time of year for kids. But Summer EBT has the potential to reach 315,000 children in Arkansas. That means that together with traditional summer meals and non-congregate meal options in rural communities, more nutritious meals will be available for kids than ever before, and families will be able to access the summer nutrition options that work best for them.

Thank you again for making this summer brighter for hundreds of thousands of kids in Arkansas and for your strong leadership and support of children and families.
