Summer Feeding Program Looking for Volunteers
Wednesday, March 2, 2016
Summer thankfully is just around the corner and while most kids look forward to summer vacation, unfortunately many kids in our community will face hunger over the summer months. Over 60% of kids in Swain County qualify for free or reduced meals while school is in session and many of these kids either go hungry or do not get adequate nutrition over the summer. It would cost families about $300 extra per month in the summer to feed kids the same nutritious foods they get at school during the school year. This is money many families simply do not have. Research shows that when kids do not get adequate nutrition over the summer, they suffer increased health problems and loose many of the learning gains they made during the school year and must be re-taught many skills once they get back to school in the fall.
