It’s the last day of school. For most kids, it’s an exciting, exhilarating time of year. But for others, it’s a time of anxiety, worry and uncertainty.
When school ends, thousands of children in our region who benefit from free or reduced-price breakfast and lunch programs will lose access to these meals. Many of these children are at risk of going hungry. It doesn’t have to be this way. Your donation to Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio can remove the grown-up worries for kids in our community.
Summer is the hungriest and unhealthiest time of year for many families in North Central Ohio. When schools close for the summer, families whose budgets are already stretched thin can’t cover the additional expense of two extra meals each day.
These families urgently need your support. Your gift now will make sure children, families and seniors have the food they need this summer. For every $10 donated, you can provide 50 meals for hungry children and their families in our region.
