End child hunger one box of cereal at a time

1 in 4 children in our area do not know where their next meal will come from. This issue is especially critical now, after the overlapping crises in 2020-2021 have left a lasting impact on our communities. Many children face hunger over the summer when they are not guaranteed free or reduced meals that they would usually receive at school. Students and families need our support to nourish these young minds.
