Supplemental food program offered to eligible students in Greene, Hancock, and Hawkins County schools.

Starting in May 2018 and continuing through August 2018, selected families with eligible school-aged children will be given Summer Electronic Benefit Transfer for Kids or Summer EBT for Kids cards. The cards will be delivered to eligible homes in May, loaded with $30 per eligible child to spend on food for children. Additional funds will be loaded on the card each month. There is no need to sign up. A child’s eligibility is determined by the child’s school and participation in the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Tennessee Summer EBT Cards can be used in any store or farmers market authorized to accept SNAP/Food Stamp benefits to purchase food for your child(ren).

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) sponsors this demonstration program in partnership with the Tennessee Department of Human Services, Tennessee Department of Education and Second Harvest Food Bank of Northeast Tennessee to give families with school-age children more resources for food during the summer months.
