Second Harvest Food Bank calls Central Floridians to action: Sign petition; urge Florida to take $820M federal assistance to feed children in need [The Apopka Voice]

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida writes:

"The state of Florida is poised to leave $820 million in federal pandemic food assistance for over 2 million hungry children on the table without immediate action by the Department of Children and Families, caution Florida Policy Institute [emphasis added], Florida Impact, No Kid Hungry, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Feeding Tampa Bay.

This assistance, which is called the Summer Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (Summer P-EBT) program, provides federal funding at no cost to states to provide grocery benefits to children who missed out on free or reduced-price meals while their school or child care facilities were closed during the summer."
