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.
