The US Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides out-of-session meals and snacks to children eligible for free of reduced-price breakfast/lunch during school months.  In contrast, the Summer Electronic Benefits Transfer for Children (SEBTC) is an electronic cash transfer to the family of an eligible child using either the existing WIC or SNAP EBT systems.  This study evaluated the ability to carry out these transfers, as well as the impact of the program on children.  The study compared five communities implementing SEBTC using either the WIC EBT of SNAP EBT method.  Results led to multiple findings, including an 80% redemption rate of issued benefits (including higher redemption rates using the SNAP system); a decrease in very-low-food-security among children from 7.0% to 5.6%; and an overall decrease in child food insecurity from 38% to 31%.  Program costs averaged $311 per child per summer, with lower costs in the communities utilizing the SNAP method.
