No Child Deserves to Go Hungry- and you can help by spreading the word!

Fiorella shared with us this awesome tip. Please spread the word!

If you have a school-aged student in need of breakfast and lunch this summer, simply text “FOOD” to 877877 and receive a message back with a location closest to where they can get free summer meals.

Even if you aren’t in need, someone else’s kids are. No child deserves to go hungry, ever.
This is a nationwide program so please repost for all of the children who are struggling to get enough food.

From Snopes:

This is a real phone number, a real program, and an accurate message. The text information service is run by No Kid Hungry, an initiative of the non-profit organization Share Our Strength.

No Kid Hungry has access to information about tens of thousands of groups serving free meals nationwide as part of the the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program.

Once the free meal providers register with the USDA, No Kid Hungry makes their location and hours available to the public via the 877-877 number. To use the service, text “FOOD” to 877-877 and enter your zip code when prompted. Spanish-speakers can also text “COMIDA” to 877-877.

I’m glad this is available but it’s sad that it’s needed.

Tina, you can thank decades of failed liberal policies.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
