hello-summer

Summer is AWESOME!

The sound of flip flops, popsicles and no school! But, summer isn’t awesome for everyone! NO school means NO lunch for some kiddos!

More than 22 million children currently receive free or reduced-price meals through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, yet the majority of those children, 4 out of every 5, will lose access to those meals as public schools close for the summer months. Summer Feeding Programs are the first step to making sure kids have enough to eat during the summer months. It will take all of us to help make sure kids only worry about being kids.

That’s why I’m teaming up with the Camera Cuties Club (the cutest group of first, second and third graders you could ever meet) to help end child hunger and make summer MORE awesome! We’re planning the ultimate KICKBALL game at our local elementary school to benefit our local food bank, Food Lifeline! We’re charging $1 per person to participate, which will help provide FIVE MEALS to families struggling with hunger! We’re also raising donations through our lemonade stand, bake goods tent, pre-loved toy table and photo booth!

If you’d like to make summer MORE awesome by helping fight hunger, check out FEEDING AMERICA for ideas or to find your local food bank.

Together we can make a difference!

Until next time.
