Stop Summer Hunger Provides Three Million Meals
Stop Summer Hunger (formerly Kids Summer Stock) is a community-wide food and funds drive held during June and July to provide the additional food needed for nearly 300,000 children in our 34 counties are in the free and reduced-cost breakfast and lunch programs at school. The campaign helps to fill the empty shelves of Food Bank warehouses in Durham, Greenville, New Bern, Raleigh, Sandhills and Wilmington during the summer when donations tend to slow down.
We are thrilled to share that the goal of three million meals for children has been met and exceeded during the two month long "Stop Summer Hunger" campaign! That's right! The final tally of nearly $600,000 and over 70,000 pounds of food will provide just over 3 million meals
Deepest thanks to all of our donors, volunteers and partners who helped ensure that hundreds of thousands of children and their families had access to daily, nutritious meals and groceries this summer.
Thank you for helping us "Stop Summer Hunger" this year!
