E-Newsletter Highlights

Even though summer is in full swing and our towns are bustling with people, that doesn’t mean that some residents aren’t still struggling. We served 40% more people at our Mobile Food Bank in June than the same time last year. And we’ve fed three times the number of children in our Backpack and Snack Attack programs this year.

We are also thrilled to announce a successful launch to our newest children’s food program called LUNCH IN THE PARK. Monday through Friday, all summer long we provide sack lunches to children at the play field next to Balmoral apartments.This is a central location for all the low income housing units in Woodside and a safe place for children to share lunch together with friends.

In the first three weeks, we have served more than 500 lunches to children who might face hunger otherwise. We thank the wonderful volunteers and supporters who allow this phenomenal program to happen! Read the full July 2014 newsletter here!
