The following is an important message from our partner, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS), about childhood hunger during the summer.
Did you know free summer meals (breakfast, lunch, or snacks) will be served to children in low-income areas this summer at sites such as neighborhood parks, libraries, schools, places of worship, mobile buses, and recreation centers?
To find where free summer meals are being served near you or someone you know, call the toll-free National Hunger Hotline (1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-Hambre) or visit www.whyhunger.org/findfood. To learn more visit the USDA’s summer meal’s website at http://www.fns.usda.gov/summer-food-service-program-sfsp
If you work for an organization involved in serving low-income children, and you’d like to learn more about how you can help address childhood hunger when school is out, you can also watch the Summer Food training videos at http://www.fns.usda.gov/outreach/webinars/summer.htm.
