“I don’t want to eat my dinner from a convenience store”

This was said by a 9 year-old boy who wasn’t sure if he was even going to be able to eat that night. During the summer, risks of food insecurity are increased as children leave school and the guarantee of meals provided by the Free & Reduced Meal program at school. 


And while food is important, we know that a
food box alone won’t end child poverty.
