Match Dollar-for-Dollar 

School Ends, Hunger Begins – Part 4
There are 40,000 kids in Sarasota and Desoto Counties who will need our help finding nutritious food this summer. No one can tell by looking at a child that he or she is hungry. Because smiles mask it and laughter muffles it, child hunger is deceptive, and it exists everywhere. Please join the Campaign Against Summer Hunger. Every dollar donated is matched, from now until May 15.

One purpose. One community. 40,000 reasons to give.

School Ends, Hunger Begins – Part 3

For many of us, the idea of kids having a “normal summer” conjures images of sunshine, friends, games and laughter. Sadly, when school ends, hunger begins for 40,000 children right here in our community. We are dedicated to helping these children get the nutritious food they need so that they can be the fun-loving, carefree children that they deserve to be, because hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation.

Hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation

Emily and Mia do everything together

Smiles mask it. Laughter muffles it. But the hunger is still there. You can’t tell by looking at a child that he or she is hungry. By nature, children are happy and seemingly carefree. But just because you can’t hear the growl doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

School Ends, Hunger Begins

Meet Emily and Mia
At school, Emily and Mia are inseparable and eat lunch together every day. But when school ends, hunger begins for one of them. Follow Emily and Mia as their story of friendship and hunger unfolds.

The Campaign Against Summer Hunger dollar-to-dollar match begins April 1 and ends on May 15, 2017. The Campaign raises food and funds to feed children and their families all summer long in Sarasota and DeSoto Counties.

When school ends, hunger begins for those students who get meals at school, their younger siblings, and for other kids who simply aren’t on the radar of the agencies that gather data. Each year, thousands of children spend the summer without knowing where or when they will eat again. Very conservative estimates place the number of school children in our community who face daily hunger at 21,000. When we factor in the ‘invisible children’ – the younger siblings of those school children and others who aren’t included in official counts – the number of hungry kids is closer to 40,000.
