Proper nutrition is critical to a child’s development. We believe that all of us can help end child hunger in America and Feeding America's nationwide network of food banks have many programs that specifically address this issue.
The Feeding America network of food banks works to reach children in need. We work to meet them where they are – so in the summer, that means in their housing communities, libraries and parks. And when children head back to school, Feeding America feeding programs head back with them. Through programs like School Pantry.
Community Kitchen of Monroe County – located in Bloomington, Indiana – works to reach as many children struggling with this situation in the summer as possible.
Unfortunately, for the nearly 22 million children, summer months mean added anxiety and worry about having enough food to get from the last school bell through Labor Day.
