One in five American children lives without consistent access to adequate food. For these children and their families, summer can be especially hard, as they lose access to the school breakfasts and lunches that they rely upon.
On April 9, we can continue to turn the tables on childhood hunger.
By joining fellow Deacs in your local community and across the nation, you can raise food and awareness to make a difference in the lives of hungry children and their families. Make the choice to connect with old friends and make a few new ones, while doing our part to make sure that no child goes hungry this summer.
Together, we will show the world that Good Wears Black.
