Did you know that while 21.5 million children rely on free or reduced-price meals during the school year, when school is out, only 2.3 million children are in the Summer Food Service Program?? Do you wonder, like I do, what happens to all those children who were in need of meals before?
What happens to those children who are not receiving a meal?
While many are out having fun and relaxing during the summer, there are many more who are at risk for hunger.
Actor, Chris O'Donnell has joined ConAgra Foods to bring awareness to this important issue. Chris worked with ConAgra Foods to develop a video and a simple way for others to join in the fight against child hunger. For every view of the video below, a meal is donated. Please take a minute to watch....
This is the fourth year of ConAgra’s Hunger-Free Summer program! They have supported the delivery of more than 2.5 million meals and snacks to children struggling with hunger over the summer! This summer, 29 food banks in 20 states will use Hunger-Free Summer grants – ranging from $20,000 to $50,000 – to overcome barriers and step up and help fill the gap for children in need.
