About the Campaign Against Summer Hunger
There are 21,000 Sarasota County students (50%) on free and reduced lunch. During the summer, when school is out, those kids – and their siblings and families – may go without regular meals. All Faiths Food Bank invites Sarasota residents to “empty their shelves” and make a cash gift so no child in our community goes hungry this summer. For more visit www.allfaithsfoodbank.org
