Biden Launches Summer Food Program to Feed 34 Million Low-Income Students

The Department of Agriculture is launching a program to feed more than 30 million low-income students during the summer months when they are out of school. The effort, which is funded by President Biden's coronavirus stimulus package approved in March, will provide roughly $375 to families of low-income children to spend on food over the summer months. According to the department, up to 12 million children may not be getting enough to eat at home during the pandemic. Dr. Wendy Sue Swanson, Pediatrician and Chief Medical Officer at SpoonfulOne, joined Wake Up with Cheddar for more on the program's importance.
