All Faiths Food Bank Launches Campaign Against Summer Hunger

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY MAR 31, 2021

Nearly half of the 43,000 students enrolled at Sarasota County schools participate in free and reduced meal programs while, in DeSoto County, all of the nearly 5,000 enrolled students rely on these meals during the school year. But when school ends, hunger begins. To try and fill the “hunger gap” for children who lose access to meals and food pantries at school, All Faiths Food Bank is, once again, launching its Campaign Against Summer Hunger. Co-chair Keith Monda said, “Nobody can look at the long line of cars at food distributions, with kids in those cars, and say they should do anything other than make sure those kids are fed. They won't be fed without us. Our responsibility is to make sure every child gets fed, every day.”
