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.
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.
"As we recognize Earth Day this year, we are pleased to acknowledge the important role Feeding America plays in food rescue and celebrate the fact this food goes where it is needed most."
