Treasure Coast Food Bank Coordinates 2016 Summer Feeding Program To Make Sure Kids Don't Go Hungry During Summer Break
School will be out before we know it. For many children, summer means long afternoons spent biking, swimming or just running around with friends. But for a lof of Treasure Coast students, summer also means limited access to healthy meals.
Treasure Coast Food Bank is coordinating the 2016 Summer Feeding Program to help make sure children and teens are well fed and—when they return to school in the fall—ready and eager to learn. Here's a brief by-the-numbers breakdown.
More than 50,000 children along the Treasure Coast could be without access to healthy, nutritious breakfasts; snacks; and lunches this summer while schools are closed.
Treasure Coast Food Bank staff prepared and delivered more than 200,000 snacks and meals last summer.
In 2016, Treasure Coast Food Bank is aiming for 300,000—and the Treasure Coast community can make this happen.
