The Summer Meals Collaborative works to ensure that kids are able to get the food they need. One of the most important ways we do that is through advocacy and public policy efforts. The Collaborative works with elected officials and government agencies to strengthen and improve access to the summer nutrition programs that help feed kids throughout the Capital Region and beyond. The 2023 Farm Bill, which will be taken up by Congress in the fall, includes nutrition programs that support Summer Meals nationwide and will be pivotal to the future availability of meals for children, particularly in rural communities.
As a Collaborative, our advocacy efforts, particularly through Hunger Solutions New York, have assisted in securing a rule change (that will go into effect next summer) which allows for the home delivery of Summer Meals in rural communities. We can’t do this work without your support – donate today to help us in our advocacy efforts.
