Join the National Day of Action to Protect Summer Meals

Summer meals are a lifeline for hungry children when school is out. But federal funding for these programs is set to expire September 30.
Roughly one in five children in our region live in poverty and rely on free school meals to keep from going hungry. What do they do when school is out?
Thanks to federal funding they can head to neighborhood summer meal sites for 1-3 meals and a snack every day.
