The Start of Summer | The Influx of Child Hunger
Food Insecurity & Child Hunger
Today marks the first day of summer. School is out and most children are looking forward to playing in the yard and having a grand old time. However, there are some children that dread summer. This is because schools provide lunches to children that are in need of food, but when school is out and summer is here, some children don’t know where their next meal will come from. More than 20 million children get a free or reduced lunch during the academic year. Six out of seven of these children will not receive these meals over the summer. This is both scary and heartbreaking.
At College Hunks, we want to bring an end to child hunger here in America as well as around the world. We want to ensure that these children have access to nutritious meals. That is why we partnered with Feeding Children Everywhere. Every time we complete a job, both junk removal and moving, we will donate two nutritious meals to a hungry child. This is expected to provide over 300,000 healthy meals to hungry children this year.
We’ve come together with Feeding Children Everywhere to put our fleet of nationwide trucks to great use, helping load, transport and deliver food supplies, tables, and equipment to the many Hunger Projects taking place around the country.
Our franchisees are committed to the cause by volunteering to set up and tear down the hunger projects, as well as volunteering at the hunger projects.
