McLennan County Hunger Coalition Day

The McLennan County Hunger Coalition received a major honor this past Saturday. We wanted to share this information with our coalition members, and visitors: The City of Waco declared May 22nd of 2010 as “McLennan County Hunger Coalition Day”!

Read the proclamation: “I, Jim Bush, by virtue of the authority vested in me as Mayor of the City of Waco, Texas, do hereby Proclaim: May 22, 2010 as “McLennan County Hunger Coalition Day” in the city of Waco, and urge the people of Waco to join with the City Council, the City staff, and me in recognizing the efforts of the McLennan County Hunger Coalition and its citizen volunteers with the Summer Food Service Program. More than 28,000 children in McLennan County receive nutritious foods meals during the school year. The Summer Food Program fills the hunger gap by providing meals and snacks. In the Summer of 2009 only 6.7% of eligible children participated. We commend the coalition in raising awareness of 2010 Summer sites: Provident Heights Elementary, Brazos Middle School, West Avenue Elementary, Brook Avenue Elementary, Sul Ross Elementary, Bell’s ill Elementary, and Doris Miller YMCA. We also thank Waco ISD Nutrition Services and other community groups that provide healthy meals to our children.”
