Summer Food Distribution Serves Local Families

Summer Food Distribution Serves Local FamiliesSummer break can be an exciting time for children, but for nearly 50 percent of students in the West Clermont School District, summer can be a challenge. The meals they can rely on through the Free/Reduced Lunch program aren’t available when school is out; a need that two Clermont County groups recognized. They are now partnering with the Freestore to help.

Did You Know?

Childhood hunger is a reality and it exists in our own neighborhoods. Nearly 100,000 children in our Tri-State area may not know from where their next meal is coming.Nearly 100,000 children in our Tri-State area are at risk of hunger.  Research shows that hungry children are more likely to be vulnerable to illness, lack focus and energy, and score lower on achievement tests. We have several programs aimed at tackling the issue of childhood hunger and ensuring kids receive the proper nutrition they need to succeed.

Food

Before there can be a conversation on possibilities and potential, we must provide food. It is the single most important foundational element linking all people.

Connection

Addressing hunger allows us to have conversations on other issues affecting individuals, families and communities to help create stability and self-reliance for those in need.

Hope

By connecting those in need to services that create stability, we work to determine the root causes of hunger and poverty and build hope in our community.
