Thanks to individuals like you, thousands of kids are receiving nutritious meals this summer. With one month left until school resumes, can you help make sure they continue to have a hunger-free summer?
Your support will help kids like Taliah. I recently talked to her as she was enjoying a turkey corn dog at the Chambers Park Community Center, one of Second Harvest’s summer feeding sites.
Taliah’s favorite meal so far has been pasta and marinara sauce.
“I can’t eat milk or cheese, so it’s nice that I can eat the meals too,” Taliah told me, “I love pasta and I love the food I get.”
Kids just like Taliah deserve to receive warm, balanced meals all summer long. While more than 60% of kids in Central Florida qualify for free or reduced lunch, only 9% of those kids participate in the summer meal program.
With your help, Second Harvest is able to reach more kids with the nutritious meals they need.
In June, donors like you helped provide 5 million meals to kids and families in our community through 550 feeding partner programs, including emergency food pantries and mobile food distributions.
