Let’s face it, most people don’t think about donating food until the holidays come around. Unfortunately, hunger is a year-round problem. Donations typically decline during the summer months. Local food pantry shelves are frequently near empty with volunteers wondering how they will meet the demand for assistance. They depend on the community to pull together for them.
In addition to empty shelves at our local food pantries, the millions of kids that rely on school for regular meals, are left without during the summer months. According to No Kid Hungry, 5 out of 6 kids who rely on free or reduced-price school meals aren’t getting free meals in the summer.
Our Feeding Frenzy competition is a way that we contribute to helping our local agencies re-stock their shelves and put food in the hands of those facing hard times in our community.
