Help End Summer Hunger With Mississippi Food Network


This week is the last week of school for many students. For some children in the Mississippi Food Network service area, summer means one thing: hunger.

When school ends, so does access to nutritious meals. More than 85 percent of children who receive food through the free or reduced-priced lunch program during the school year won’t be getting that assistance during the summer.

You can help these students by taking part in Mississippi Food Network’s Share a Lunch, End Summer Hunger campaign. Every $1 you give helps provide enough food for 6 meals. So, if you donate the amount equal to one day’s lunch (about $10), you could help feed a child 60 meals!

Help end summer hunger for one child — or as many as you can. Because every child deserves a hunger-free summer. Make a difference this summer, and donate to Mississippi Food Network here.
