SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY FEB 29, 2020

The Food Bank will kick-off the annual Campaign Against Summer Hunger with a walk across the Ringling Bridge. The Walk to End Summer Hunger will be held on March 29 at 8 am at JD Hamel Park. It will launch a six-week dollar for dollar match challenge of $1.4 million from April 1 through May 15 to fund summer food programs to feed 40,000 students and their younger siblings who are at risk of going hungry over the summer. The Campaign Against Summer Hunger has become the community’s strongest line of defense against child hunger. Last year, 228 partners and programs worked together to provide 37,668 children with 3.3 million meals. The walk is open to the public and community members of all ages. A $10 registration fee includes a t-shirt and breakfast. Registration is open until March 25th.
