Summer Hunger Campaign
Hunger Never Takes a Vacation
Catholic Charities’ Summer Hunger campaign aims to alleviate some of the stress that many families face during the summer when children do not have access to daily breakfast and lunch at school. Funds and food donations collected during this campaign enable Catholic Charities to offer healthy food and snacks to client families facing greater food insecurity in the summer months.
Many families have recently fallen on hard times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to serve our neighbors in need during these difficult times providing food, food vouchers and other material goods to help families and children trapped in the cycle of poverty and hunger.
We are Here for Those in Need…Especially Now
Catholic Charities is “open for business” and has been helping individuals and families in need throughout this unprecedented time. In addition to assisting those who typically rely on our services, Catholic Charities is also working with families who have recently fallen on hard times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Catholic Charities continues to serve our neighbors in need during these difficult times, providing food, food vouchers and other material goods to help those who may be struggling with hunger for the first time.
In order to serve at least 5,000 children this summer, Catholic Charities’ agencies are stocking our food pantries, providing meals and working the “front lines” to minimize anxieties and keep families connected to our services.
