BENEFITING: North Texas Food Bank
Summer is the Hungriest Season for North Texas Kids
- Summer is the lowest point in the year for donations of both food and funds.
- Children’s need for food spikes with the close of school feeding programs, and too many families can’t stretch their budgets to cover the extra meals
- Out of every 100 Texas children who receive free meals during the school year, only 11 receive meals over the summer.
- 1 in every 4 kids in North Texas is food insecure (304,000 children).
Help to Make Summer a Season of Hope, Not Hunger
$6 - Provides nourishment for 1 child for a week
$20 - Provides nourishment for 1 child for just over three weeks
$ 60 - Provides nourishment for 1 child for the Summer
Your support will help us reach more children than ever before with balanced, healthy meals. The North Texas Food Bank's Philanthropy Council challenges you to make a difference in the lives of food-insecure children this summer!
