Summer Can Mean Hungry Children
For the fortunate, summer equals the beach, tanning and lounging around – an escape from reality. But, for all too many kids across the country, summer means hunger. As schools close, so do the cafeterias that serve these kids low-cost meals, and instead of laughter, the all-too-common noise is the grumbling of a child’s stomach. While many may forget, hunger is a year-round problem and one that needs our constant attention.
