Summer begins and so does the hunger!
So many of the kids get breakfast and lunch at school for free or reduced prices. Some of them the food they get at school is pretty much all they get all day. Now school is out and that is taken away. I know we have a couple of programs in town that help feed them in the summer and some of their parents get food stamps. But, some of the kids can't get to the programs and sometimes those food stamps get wasted and sold. Some people fall through the cracks too, they make too much to get help but not enough to pay for everything. No matter what the case, the innocent kids pay the price.
Either way, it makes me sad, all I am asking of you my readers is this, can we give a little to help one of these programs, or if you see a neighbor kid who looks hungry, maybe you could make an extra peanut butter sandwich and invite them to share, or at least can we pray?
