Summer Meals for Kids in Need

Summer Meals for Kids in Need

About This Campaign

During June, July and August, when school’s out, thousands of children in our community don’t have access to school meal programs they count on for the nutrition their growing bodies need.

One in five kids in our region are food insecure.

Foodlink works hard to make sure no child has to go hungry during summer vacation. With your support, we partner with community organizations to provide daily summer meals to children in need.

Children enjoy their meal at one of 53 sites serving Foodlink's summer meals. We go above and beyond national standards to provide healthy, well-balanced meals like Zingy Chicken Fajita Wraps, Egg-cellent Egg Salads, or Roasted Turkey Sandwiches. Meals are often accompanied by a bag of New York State apples sliced right here at Foodlink.

We believe that food is more than sustenance. It not only fills stomachs, it empowers young minds. In the words of Jason, an emergency food pantry manager in the Rochester City School District; “So many students have to worry about ‘adult’ problems that aren’t of their own making. Food allows them to do what they should be doing – learning, playing, and growing.”

That’s why increasing our efforts is so important in the summer when food is scarce for so many of our children, and why your summer commitment matters so much.

Your gift makes a difference. Thank you for partnering with us to build a community where all people have what they need to lead healthy lives.
