S.O.S or (Spring Onto Summer) is a food drive aimed at supplying food pantries with resources during the summer months when the need for food is much greater.
Food Pantries struggle to keep up with the demands of their clients during the summer because more kids are on break from school. When schools are closed during the summer many kids do not get the benefit of free or reduced school lunches and must rely on meals from home; this puts an extra strain on pantries to provide more food to these children’s households.
S.O.S 2012 will take place on April 27th from 8:00am to 6:00pm. If you are interested in helping promote S.O.S, donating food, or have any questions please call the Mclennan County Hunger Coalition at 254-224-8486 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
