Lindsey works work full-time but struggles to buy quality food. She says, “The (Community Produce Program) means I can serve my kids awesome fresh meals. The kids love fruits and veggies but they can be expensive and take up a big chunk of our small budget. I am thrilled to now have fresh produce delivered to my neighborhood, walking distance to my home.”
Summer can be especially worrisome for thousands of children in Contra Costa and Solano counties. Since they are no longer in school to receive lunch, children often do not get enough to eat.
You can help feed children during the summer! Even small donations make a big difference as the Food Bank can purchase in bulk to serve more people in need.
For as little as $10.50 you can help provide food towards three meals a day for one week for one child.
With community support we are able to let kids be kids by taking hunger off their mind for a little while, and work toward long-term solutions to child hunger.
