Summer is the hungriest time of year for many children. Without access to school lunches, many kids go without a meal. In our community that represents one in four San Antonio kids who will experience hunger this summer. On top of that, the pandemic crisis forced kids to finish the school year at home further increasing the need.
To fight hunger this summer, KENS 5 and our sponsors have a goal to fill up the Food Bank warehouse and feed as many children as possible. It gives us hope that we are going to meet the demand and make sure no child goes hungry, but it’s going to take the entire community to help.
Last year, more than 12 million meals were raised for San Antonio children facing hunger through the San Antonio Food Bank’s Summer Meals for Kids program. Our goal is to exceed that number this year.
Thank you to our KENS 5 sponsors — AFFCU, Subway, Texas Homes and Methodist Healthcare — for helping us get the word out about the dire need.
Let’s make sure nobody goes hungry this summer. Every $1 donated helps serve 7 meals. Please consider making a monetary donation to help the San Antonio Food Bank feed these hungry kids.
