Summer 2024 will be the first year for Indiana SUN Bucks, a new benefits program providing families $120 for each eligible school-aged child to buy groceries when school is out.

Most eligible families will get these benefits automatically, but some parents will need to apply. This new program is available in addition to free meals that kids of all ages can get at summer meal sites in their communities. To see if you qualify or if you have additional questions, please follow the link below.
