Summer has always been a difficult time for families and children facing hunger. School is out of session, which means many kids are at risk of missing out on meals, and this year, inflated grocery and gas prices are putting an additional strain on families. That’s why we need your help to make it a Hunger Free Summer.
The Hunger Free Summer matching gift campaign has played a critical role in providing millions of meals over the summer to kids and their families. Citizens and other generous donors will match all gifts through August 31, doubling your ability to provide a Hunger Free Summer for hungry neighbors in Southeast Michigan.
Every dollar given through August 31 provides SIX meals for children and other vulnerable neighbors in our community.
This summer, Gleaners is operating 45 stationary meal sites and 24 mobile sites for children in our community. The prepared meals distributed through this program are held to a high nutritional standard, and include a protein, a grain, a fruit, a vegetable, and milk.
If you need help, please call 2-1-1 or visit gcfb.org. If you can give help, please donate at hungerfreesummer.org.
