What is Missouri SuN Bucks?

Missouri SuN Bucks is a new program to help families buy food for their school-aged children during the summer months of June, July, and August. Families will get a one-time $120 benefit per qualifying child loaded onto an EBT card. These funds can be used to buy nutritious foods at authorized locations. Eligible children can also participate in other summer meal programs, and receiving SUN Bucks has no effect on immigration status. To receive information on the status of the program, subscribe to receive email updates.
