On behalf of the Food For The Summer Partnership, I am excited to help roll out ‘Food For The Summer’ – a new program for providing daily meals to our community’s under resourced children during the long summer break.

This new program will fill a void created by reduced access to regular meals for many of the roughly 3,300 children in our school district who rely on Free and Reduced Lunch each day.

The task of preparing and delivering food to children throughout the area is a big one but, through collaboration, the Food for The Summer alliance is up to the task.

During this first summer, our goal is to provide a nutritious lunch to 1,500 children each weekday.  Food will be prepared by CHCCS food service staff and distributed to 20 meal sites by community volunteers.

For more information about how you can help, please contact Katie Hug, our program coordinator, at Foodforthesummer@ifcmailbox.org or 252-626-4135 or visit our website:  foodforthesummer.org

Together we will make a difference!
