VOLUNTEER AND HELP END HUNGER
End Hunger In Your Community
During the school year, children from low-income families receive free or reduced-price school meals through the National School Lunch Program. Free and reduced-price school meals help families on a tight budget and give students the proper nutrition they need to learn, grow, and play. But when school lets out, these free and reduced-price school meals are no longer available and students are at risk of going hungry or being malnourished. Fortunately, Volunteer To Serve is here to provide kids and teens in low-income areas free summer meals when school is out.
