In 2015 close to 22 million kids in America depended on school lunch programs. However, in the summer months, food insecurity increases and the access to nutritious meals decrease.
The Akron community stands with a 65.6% poverty . Many kids struggle with getting enough to eat in the summer when their school meals disappear. Federal nutrition programs that operate during the summer months only reach a fraction of kids in need and sadly are under utilized by the community.
