Most kids count down the days until their last day of school, but for many children, summer is a hungry season. Millions of children lose access to free or reduced-price meals when school is out. That’s why Feeding America is setting out to help kids facing hunger by raising awareness of this critical issue.
To grab attention and help us get the message out, we drove a little ice cream truck on a coast-to-coast journey, making stops along the way to highlight the hard work that the Feeding America network of food banks does on daily basis to fight child hunger.
The journey concluded in a big way at Para Los Niños, an organization served by the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. We were joined by Leighton Meester, Adam Brody and Tiffani Thiessen, who welcomed the truck and volunteered to serve meals to local kids in need.
