In a perfect world, no kid would ever be hungry… especially not in this land of over-indulgence and abundance, America.
Washington, DC – For many children, summer is a time for friends, vacations, and carefree days in the sun. But for the millions of children who rely on school meals, the summer months can be a time of uncertainty and hunger when those meals disappear.
The federal summer meals program helps children get the healthy food they need when school is out. These free, healthy meals are available to kids and teens across the country, but only a fraction of those in need have access. Forty-three percent of low-income families find themselves without enough food when school lets out. Many parents don’t even know the summer meals program exists.
Take the pledge – which takes about 30 seconds and costs nothing – to end childhood hunger and join #TeamNKH.
