Spring Break is around the corner and, for most of us, this is a time when we can think about fun vacations, catching up on household tasks or just relaxing. Unfortunately, for many of the children that we serve, this is an unwelcome break from school, primarily because they will NOT have access to two meals a day. Even though the economy has begun to show resurgence, there is still a need for food assistance programs targeting children and families. And, food insecurity, or the lack of consistent access to adequate food, is of particular concern during extended breaks from the school breakfast and lunch programs.
Once again, Communities In Schools of Wichita/Sedgwick Co. is launching a Break 4 Kids Food Drive. This year, our goal is to provide a week’s worth of food for our families. But in order to do this, we need your help!
