Summer vacation. For many children in the Fredericksburg Area those are two of the sweetest words in their vocabulary. Nothing could be better than having week upon week stretch before you with no worries whatsoever. But unfortunately that's not the case for all our community's children. For thousands of children in the Fredericksburg Area, summer vacation has added on huge worry...hunger.

These children, during the school year, wake up every weekday morning knowing that they will be able to have a nourishing breakfast and a hot lunch, courtesy of their school lunch or breakfast program. But during the summer it's a much different story.

Instead, they open their cupboards and there may not be any cereal for breakfast, fruit for a snack or bread for a sandwich. Without these sources of high-quality nutrients, these children's growth and minds may be stunted.

Fortunately, with your help, we can make sure these children don't have to face hunger this summer. For every $10 donated we can provide enough food for 30 meals for hungry children and their families in the Fredericksburg Area.

With your donation  and our resources, we can feed children in need. Your gift today will bring summer smiles to hungry children!

With gratitude,
Oya Oliver, CEO
