As part of its efforts to end child hunger, FNS is studying alternative approaches to providing food to children in the summer months. The 2010 Agriculture Appropriations Act (PL 111-80) authorized and provided funding for the USDA to implement and rigorously evaluate the two-year Summer Food for Children Demonstration, one component of which is the Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer for Children (SEBTC). This report describes the progress and status of the SEBTC demonstration and its evaluation in the first year and highlights the implementation experiences (through midsummer 2011) of the five state agencies that received grants to implement the demonstration in this first “proof-of-concept” (POC) year.
