1 in 5 kids in our community is at risk of missing a meal today.
Child hunger in our community is a serious issue.
Children who don't get enough to eat are less likely to do well in school, are likely to get sick more often, are less likely to graduate from high school and do not have the chance to reach their full potential.
Summer break means the kids who rely on free or reduced-price meals are left without meals they count on at school. But we have enough resources in our community to ensure all kids have enough to eat.
So many families are just one job change, health issue, or rent increase away from needing a little extra help putting food on the table. Many families only need to access resources for a period of time until they get back on their feet. No matter your circumstance, there is help.
Child hunger in our community isn't a resource problem—it's an access problem. That's why we're kicking off No Kid Hungry South Washington County—to better connect families in need with meal resources. If you're interested in getting involved, click below to learn how.
