While many children celebrate the end of the school year and look forward to a summer full of fun activities, it can be a very difficult time in the lives of children experiencing poverty. 4,000 children in Johnson County are food insecure, and may not have even one guaranteed meal each day. This is the equivalent of roughly eight elementary schools in Johnson County being filled exclusively with children experiencing food insecurity.
Unfortunately, donations to CommUnity Food Bank, formerly The Crisis Center, slow down during the summer. But your annual participation helps stock CommUnity shelves and meet great need each year.
Your support for Strike Out Hunger, sponsored by Hills Bank, will help us make a significant impact in the lives of children in our community.
