Million Summer Meals for Kids

Benefiting the San Antonio Food Bank

KENS 5 and a group of San Antonio businesses are joining forces with the San Antonio Food Bank this summer in an effort to collect a Million Summer Meals for Kids.

Summer is the San Antonio Food Bank’s greatest time of need: school is out and more than 300,000 low-income children will lose their access to regular daily school breakfasts and lunches. This puts a greater strain on families’ already tight budget, and as a result the Food Bank receives a significant increase in emergency food requests during the summer.

KENS 5 and the business sponsors of this effort hope to raise a Million Summer Meals for Kids from Memorial day through August 22nd to address this need. The community can help by donating food or money this summer. Official drop off locations include all Air Force Federal Credit Union branches, Country Home Learning Centers, North Park Toyota, and Express Lube locations.

The San Antonio Food Bank also encourages you to donate online here, as every $1 = 7 meal. How many meals will you provide?
