Help Children Stay Fed

Help children stay 
fed this summer!
Summer vacation should be a carefree time for kids, but for millions of children and their families summer can be a time of stress and anxiety. As schools close, the meals many low-income children rely on also come to an end, and they spend their summers worried about how to get enough to eat.

Today, First Book is joining our partners, the No Kid Hungry Campaign, to promote its summer texting program so more families know about summer meals sites in their communities. As a member of the First Book Network, we know you care about providing all children with the support they need and we hope that you’ll share the following information with the families you serve.

Families can text ‘FOOD‘ to 877-877 or call 1-866-3HUNGRY to find a site that serves free meals near them.
