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 summer.

This year in particular is an exciting time for Summer EBT implementation in dozens of states for the first time. But not every state is participating this summer for a variety of reasons. We need your help.

Please join us in encouraging your state to plan and prepare for next year so more kids can access these essential, game-changing benefits in summer 2025 and beyond.

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.

End Summer Hunger: Please Implement Summer EBT Next Year

Dear [Decision Maker],

For too long, summer has been the hungriest time of year for kids. But it doesn't have to be that way anymore. Today, through traditional summer meals, rural non-congregate meal options, and Summer EBT benefits for families to purchase groceries in the summer, more nutritious meals are available for eligible kids than ever before. Together they have the power to close the long-standing summer meals gap.

Georgia has the opportunity to ensure that nearly 1.2 million more kids have access to the nutrition they need in summer 2025 through implementation of the Summer EBT program.

Thank you in advance for finding a way to make future summers brighter for millions of kids in Georgia.
