The summer months are the most difficult time for our county's food banks. During the school year, hungry children get the majority of their daily calories from free or reduced price school lunches. When school is out of session, those calories must come from somewhere else. There are summer meal programs, but over 16 % of Sonoma County children face a greater risk of hunger during the summer because those programs are difficult to access and underfunded.
Please help us make hunger take a holiday.
