Summer is the hungriest time of the year for some kids

Author: Dave Krepcho

School is out and summer is here. For many children, that means vacations, summer camp, fun at the pool and time with friends. However, for other children in our community, summer means one thing: hunger.

When school ends, so does access to nutritious meals. Children who receive food assistance through the free or reduced-price lunch program during the school year will not be getting that assistance in the summer. These children are facing a summer of hunger.

Because i know you care, and because I know that you can make a difference for them. Every $10 you give today helps distribute up to $90 worth of food. Right now, we need Hunger Heroes just like you.

Will you please consider becoming a Summer Hunger Hero for kids? Your gift will go to work immediately to feed kids in our community. Help one child, or as many as you can, because every child deserves a hunger-free summer.

Thank you for caring,

Dave Krepcho
President & CEO
