Families Need YOU to Help No Kid Hungry #ShareSummer Free Meal Sites

I came across a hilarious parenting meme online, written as a pseudo Public Service Announcement (PSA) to kids from concerned parents across the nation. Bringing comic relief to families faced with endless cycles of snack requests from kids home for summer vacation away from school. The call to action was a heartfelt reminder for kids to remember to use their "school stomachs" as a summer meal and snack time schedule. What happens during the summer when "school stomachs" are fed by free lunch programs at their schools? Did you know that 6 out of 7 hungry kids don't get the summer meals they need? Families need YOU to help No Kid Hungry #ShareSummer free meal sites. Let’s #ShareSummer with them.

As a concerned parent and activist, Creative Learning Center Studios has committed to support and help end childhood hunger as a No Kid Hungry Blogger.

Families Need YOU to Help No Kid Hungry #ShareSummer Free Meal Sites

For kids who rely on the free meals they get at school, summer can be the hungriest time of year. I am proud to support No Kid Hungry 
by sharing this important #ShareSummer information. When schools close, school meals disappear and summers can turn into a time of hunger and anxiety for many kids from low-income families. 

It doesn’t have to be this way.

All across the country, schools and community groups run summer meals sites where kids can eat breakfast and lunch for free. No Kid Hungry helps local organizations launch and operate these sites, and we also help fund needed equipment like coolers or mobile meals trucks. Parents, grandparents and caregivers can text ‘FOOD’ to 877-877 to find free summer meals sites in their neighborhoods. The service is also available in Spanish, by texting the word “COMIDA” instead of “FOOD”.

Help us spread the word and fuel our work to feed more kids, all summer long. Together, we are ending childhood hunger.
