In Central Texas, summertime
days spent cooling off at our favorite swimming holes, family vacations, and
backyard cookouts. For too many families,
summer time is a financially difficult time of year, with rising gasoline prices and soaring electricity bills stretching budgets to their
limits. Worse, many young children will not have access to free and
reduced price lunches through the public
schools, leaving their parents to struggle to meet
that nutritional gap when their household budgets are already so fragile.
At the Capital Area Food Bank,
we believe no child should go hungry. That is why
we are launching our Summer Meals That Matter campaign. Join us by helping us meet our goal of raising 500,000
nutritious meals to ensure that
children, families and older adults have the food they need all summer
long. Your gift is tax-deductible.
