This year marks the 10th anniversary for the All Faiths Food Bank’s Campaign Against Summer Hunger. EG Solutions is a proud contributor to the local charity and supported their effort to combat summer hunger for local children.
When school ends, hunger begins for more than 40,000 children. And now, as the cost of living surges in the face of growing inflation, so many families are working harder than ever to make ends meet.
Many Sarasota and DeSoto County students rely on free and reduced meals at school. The summer months can be especially difficult for the children of families struggling to put food on the table.
Hunger deprive children of more than just food.
Child hunger = learning delays, psychological distress and behavioral problems that can impact a child’s growth and development long into the future. Growing children need access to good nutrition to develop properly, avoid illness and focus in the classroom.
