Fighting To End Childhood Hunger

 

With the overwhelming increased unemployment (and underemployment) rates, the reality is that Childhood hunger is increasing daily and will continue to do so. Nearly one out of four children in America are currently facing hunger. Unfortunately, it’s likely that these children will endure lifelong consequences as hunger makes children more prone to illness and other health issues as a result of having limited access to nutritious foods.

 

During the school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through the School Breakfast and National School Lunch Programs. But when school lets out, those children are still in need of healthy meals. Lack of nutrition after school and during the summer months may set up a cycle for poor performance once school begins again. Freedom Within Walls’ feeding programs are designed to provide assistance in that nutrition gap, ensuring that children get the nutritious meals they need for breakfast, lunch, and dinner when they are not in school.

Freedom Within Walls has developed feeding programs, in which we purchase, prepare and distribute full, healthy meals for dinner and a healthy afternoon snack to over 1,500 children after school daily throughout the school year.  Throughout the summer, we operate our Summer Food Service Program in which we purchase, prepare and distribute full, healthy meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner to over 5,000 underserved children daily throughout the entire summer.   We are assisting in providing a door of opportunity for the youth in our communities to enjoy a healthier quality of life while reducing Childhood hunger through these programs. By helping to improve children’s diets and eating habits, these programs produce healthy and revived students ready to positively impact their world and others around them.
