Every parent never wants to say “We can’t have lunch today. We don’t have anything to eat.” School breakfast and lunch programs provide meals to food insecure kids but what happens when school is out in the summer?
I had the privilege of participating in my first Feeding America Day of Impact this month. Each year, the Feeding America National Office team volunteers at local food pantries and agencies and works closely with those dedicated to helping others.
Foodlink, a member of the Feeding America network of food banks, is changing that with The Curbside Market. For the third summer in a row, low-income residents in Rochester, NY and surrounding communities have access to affordable, garden-fresh delights five days a week.
Online Marketplace aims to eliminate current barriers to highly perishable, small-volume food rescue by directly connecting donors to meal service programs and food pantries nearby with the oversight of the local food bank.
