Hunger Doesn't Take A Summer Vacation
In fact, hunger increases in the summertime when low-income children do not have access to school meals. Meet Ava, a young CFA client who is always very excited to see what’s inside the bags her mom, Jerri, picks up from CFA. The summer will be tough for Ava.
No school, no camp and without CFA’s help, her tummy will rumble at night because she's hungry.
Jerri and Ava will be picking up several emergency food packages this summer.
Every summer we see working parents who face a daily struggle to keep up with the nutritional needs of their growing children as well as manage the extra childcare costs.
