Summer Drive for Hunger
“For some families, school being out means a certain kind of freedom. For the families we serve, it means just the opposite, “says Tracey Galloway, CEO of Community Cooperative. “The summer months can be the cruelest season for families who can’t rely on the schools to feed their hungry children. More than 70 percent of Lee County students qualify for free/reduced breakfast and lunch during the school year. One out of every six of our neighbors is food insecure and cannot depend on consistent meals.”
The “Summer Drive for Hunger” is a series of food collection parties, where local businesses host the community to come to a food and funds drive to fight summer hunger in our community. Consider hosting your own Summer Drive for Hunger Party. For more information email Stefanie@communitycooperative.com or call (239) 461-2802.
