School's Out, But Hunger Isn't.

As the weather heats up, many North Carolinians start planning vacations and days by the pool. But in the 34 counties the Food Bank serves, just over 300,000 (1 in 5) children are eligible for free or reduced cost breakfast and lunch at school, and rely on the free and reduced-cost meals at school to get them through the day. During the summer, school meals are no longer available. For them, summertime doesn't mean a fun-filled vacation. For them, no school means no meals. Stop Summer Hunger is our annual initiative to raise awareness, funds, and food to feed these children and their families during this season of increased need.
