2021 Campaign Co-chairs: Keith Monda and Veronica Brady
This year, the Campaign Against Summer Hunger returns for its 8th year from April 1-May 15. Since the start of the campaign in 2014, we have known that when school ends, hunger begins for more than 40,000 children. But, as the pandemic stretches on, children continue to be significantly impacted by current-day challenges and uncertainties.
Nearly 50% of Sarasota County students and 100% of DeSoto County students rely on free and reduced meals at school. With summer school programs potentially closed this summer, daily meals may not be accessible. The summer months ahead present real challenges for the children of families struggling to put food on the table.
Hunger deprives children of more than just-food.
Child hunger = serious health consequences as well as negative impacts on prospects for future success.
Your gift during this campaign is critical to help provide the nutritious food boys and girls need to learn, grow, and thrive. You can help feed our community’s future by making sure kids have enough to eat.
All Faiths Food Bank’s Campaign Against Summer Hunger has become our community’s strongest line of defense against child hunger. Through our partners and summer programs, we work hard to make sure children receive the help they need.
Child hunger is a problem we can solve together.
