Children's summer food program
Each summer, thousands of families in Clark, Champaign and Logan Counties struggle to provide their children with nutritious meals when schools close for the summer and no longer provide meals through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. The need has become increasing critical this year during the Coronavirus pandemic as challenges to food access continue to affect our neighbors.
This year, Second Harvest Food Bank has provided over 2.8 million meals to families and children serving 37,000 individuals, of which nearly 20,000 are new adults and children who had not used food bank services in the past. Second Harvest is committed to continuing this needed service during the summer, but we need your support.
This summer, our goal is to provide meals to 30,000+ children in our tri-county service area who receive food during the school year and may have to go without. But with your help, we can change that.
No child should have to face hunger. Thanks to Second Harvest Food Bank supporters like you, we can be closer to making that vision a reality. We hope that you give serious consideration to contributing to help support struggling families and children this summer.
Thank you for your support and commitment to those in need.
