Area Summer Feeding Programs for Children are Launching

With the advent of summer, numerous local partners are stepping into the void created by the end of the school year to feed children whose families rely heavily on federal feeding programs in school. Children 18 and under can be fed for free during much of the summer at schools, parks, recreation centers, and housing complexes around the area.

Information about feeding sites in the region can be accessed by calling 2-1-1, texting FOODTX to 877-877, or accessing this interactive website hosted by the Texas Department of Agriculture to search for nearby feeding locations.

Did you know that a $10 donation can help provide up to 40 meals for desperate people in your community? Rest assured, that every penny of your donation will be stretched to it’s maximum effect. By making a donation, you are helping to ensure that hungry children in Southeast Texas are adequately nourished, that none of our senior citizens are forced to chose between medicine and food, and that every family facing a crisis can at least have the assurance of food on the table.

Your gift goes a long, long way!
