Take the Happy, Healthy Summer Pledge
May 12, 2010 § Leave a comment
Did you know that more than 210,000 children in our 21-county service territory are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch? In Travis County alone, that’s more than 77,000 students from economically disadvantages families with incomes less than 185% of the poverty level.
Summers are especially hard on these families. With children out of school, they can’t rely on free and reduced-price lunch programs. Families will be looking for other ways to keep their children happy and healthy this summer, and you can help in a big way.
PLEDGE your support. Help us meet the increased demand and provide meals to children in need through several year-round Kids Cafe sites, 20 Summer Food Service Program sites, and through other trusted CAFB programs. Donate now to help us get ready for this summer. And donate again in June and July to help us meet the increased need during these months.
PARTNER with us to stay informed. Sign up to receive special reminders and updates about our efforts.
PASS IT ON. Ask others to take the pledge. Send your friends and family a special e-card letting them know you are providing healthy meals for children in need this summer, and that they should too!
