End Summer Hunger is Hopelink's grassroots campaign that gathers the support of the local community in the form of local businesses, organizations, schools and individuals to help provide low-income families with food for kids who receive free or reduced-price meals during the school year.
Opportunities to Help
Part of the program focus is on kids helping kids through classroom coin drives. This is a way to show that students can make a difference when their spare change is added together. The idea of helping not only people in their community — but those in their own school — to have enough to eat during the summer can empower students and teach them the importance of philanthropy. Another essential component of the End Summer Hunger Campaign is the support of businesses. Every year, local businesses help raise donations of money and food that affect hundreds of families.
