It won’t be long before children across our service area will begin summer vacation. While summer vacation is considered to be freedom for many children, for those facing hunger it means losing the one place that they can count on for a meal – school.

For most of the country, the face of hunger is surprising. It does not discriminate against age, race, gender, or ethnicity. It affects working families who are forced to make difficult choices between food and basic necessities such as utilities, medicine, or rent.

The USDA’s Summer Food Service Program can help by providing meals in June and July. Through the SFSP, summer programs can provide up to two healthy meals or snacks per day, five days per week to children and teenagers, 18 years and younger, at approved central sites in low-income areas.
