All Faiths Food Bank works to close the summer hunger gap
The Côte des Dons
FRIDAY JUNE 18, 2021 |
In order to reach as many children in the area as possible, All Faiths Food Bank works with many partners, including the Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) of DeSoto County and Sarasota Schools. During FNS distributions at some school campuses, All Faiths provides additional food resources: backpacks filled with healthy food and snacks, and boxes of fresh produce. The next school distributions will be on Tuesday, June 22 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Fruitville Elementary School and North Port and Venice High Schools. (For more dates and locations, visit allfaithsfoodbank.org.) “When school ends, hunger begins for far too many children in our area,” said Sandra Frank, CEO of All Faiths. “We are very grateful to our major investors as well as to all members of the community who contributed to the campaign. Thanks to their generosity, tens of thousands of children in the region will have access to food in convenient locations throughout the summer.
