For many children, the only substantial and nutritious meals each day are provided at school. With schools out for the summer, those same children face the very real threat of going hungry. In response, a number of communities across the country have established programs that provide on-site or take home meals. One national organization,  www.feedingamerica.org, offers methods for donating and participating in the challenge to end hunger for children.

Check with your local school or social service department to see how you and your community can help to assure that no child goes to bed hungry.
