Over 14% of the population in Washtenaw County are [http://map.feedingamerica.org/county/2014/overall/michigan| considered food insecure]. During the school year, kids on the Federal Lunch program have, thankfully, a couple of meals built into their day. In the summer months, children can still rely on a considerable number of [http://www.foodgatherers.org/?module=Page&sID=summer-food|Summer Food Service Programs] so that no one goes hungry. These programs are funded by the [http://www.usda.gov/wps/portal/usda/usdahome|U.S. Department of Agriculture] and sponsored by [http://www.foodgatherers.org|Food Gatherers]. Spread the word to ensure all of Washtenaw County's children are adequately fed this summer!
This is excellent information. It's sad that such a large percentage are food insecure, but really great to know that there are supportive services available for the summer months.
I went to the USDA once
Great idea so we don't waste so much and can feed hungry folk.
Thank you Food Gatherers.
