Hunger Knows No Class
In May, The Reader informed you of a national hotline aiming to put an end to hunger. The hotline is currently on a mission to feed hungry children facing the summer without the promise of school lunch. Children facing food insecurity at home count on free and reduced lunches at school as their one guaranteed meal every day. While many children spend their summer playing in the sun, these children face these hot months with dread. The hunger hotline makes it easy for kids to be connected to free food! The hotline can be reached at 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE for help in Spanish. Interested in becoming a volunteer? Visit http://hungervolunteer.org/ +
