For the thousands of children who rely on their school’s breakfast and lunch for their meals, summer is no vacation.
Families who rely on free and reduced-priced lunches during the school year struggle with the summer meal gap right at the time when donations tend to slow. These are families like Michelle’s. When her daughter couldn’t take care of her kids, Michelle welcomed them into her home, but she wasn’t able to stretch her budget enough to give them everything they need.
She’s not alone. Hungry kids across Eastern Massachusetts need even more help in the summer, which is why GBFB continues to distribute nutritious food to families in need throughout the summer via our free mobile markets, health center produce distributions and even School-Based Pantries in Lawrence, Billerica and Revere that will remain active throughout June, July and August.
But, we can’t do it without you.
With your support today, thousands of children and families can enjoy summer knowing they can count on the nutritious food provided by GBFB – and you.
