This summer’s “Be The Difference” campaign supports Second Harvest Food Bank-sponsored summer meal sites and helps to provide special Family Meal Boxes to children in need and their families during the weeks school is not is session. Last summer, Second Harvest Food Bank provided nearly 540,000 meals to struggling families and sponsored Summer Food Service Program sites in six counties. Participating children looked forward to healthy meals each weekday and kid-friendly, nutritious meal packs for the weekends, and their families were grateful for weekly meal boxes to supplement family food resources while school was out.

Thanks to the generosity of several anonymous supporters and United Guaranty, through June 30 every $2 you give will be matched with $1 to help keep kids nourished and strong this summer. This summer’s goal of providing 700,000 meals to children in our region this summer is in sight – but thousands of families still need your help. Please don’t let this opportunity to Be the Difference for a hungry child pass by. Visit Second Harvest Food Bank at www.hungernwnc.org and give a gift today.
