Join Us in Our Support of the San Antonio Food Bank’s Summer Meals for Kids Program
Summer is finally here! Unfortunately, during these next few months, many children of low-income families will no longer have access to the free or reduced-priced breakfast and lunch they were receiving at school. Summer break adds additional expenses such as increased grocery bills, utility bills, and day care costs making it difficult for some families to provide adequate healthy meals for their children. Now, more children could be in danger of going hungry due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last year, KENS 5 along with AFFCU and other sponsors, raised more than 11 million meals for children facing hunger in the San Antonio area through the Million Summer Meals for Kids program. This year, the goal is to raise 12 million meals, but we can’t do this without your help.
AFFCU has once again partnered with KENS 5 and the San Antonio Food Bank to support this great cause by working to raise donations. Summer Meals for Kids will run through August 2020. Monetary donations can be made directly through the San Antonio Food Bank website. A simple $1 donation can provide up to seven meals!
