Give Kids a Break from Hunger
For many children in Omaha, the free lunch program offers them access to one guaranteed meal per day. For families who are struggling, that one meal was the difference between a happy child and a hungry child. For the 1 in 5 children facing food insecurity in Omaha, summer break is a months long hunger sentence. If you know of a child who is at risk for hunger, simply text “FOOD” to 877877 for information about organizations bringing free meals to kids home on summer vacation.
