School is out for summer but hunger never takes a vacation

School is out and summer is finally here! But for many kids summer time is a scary time of year.

Families that rely on free and reduced breakfast and lunch during the school year are now faced with stretching already tight budgets to provide two extra meals a day. In addition, there are added costs such as child care, higher utility bills and higher grocery bills.

Loaves & Fishes expects to provide a week’s worth of groceries for 8,000 children during June, July and August.

For even one child, not knowing where your next meal is coming from can be very scary. You can help fill empty bellies and bring smiles to hungry faces.  Send hunger on vacation – Donate today
