When you're a young child, going to bed feels like torture. Obviously, everything fun happens after you're asleep, right? So you stall, you ask for another drink of water, another story. When you're finally tucked in, it's almost painful thinking about what you must be missing.

But for some kids right here in the Fredericksburg Area, going to bed carries with it a very different, very real pain: the pain of an empty stomach.

Have you ever tried to fall asleep hungry? Maybe you just went to bed a little too late or maybe dinner didn't stick. Whatever the reason, you know the discomfort -- the tossing and turning -- that comes with trying to sleep while your stomach is growling.

The fact is, 1 in every 4 kids in the Fredericksburg Area struggles with hunger. Together, we can solve hunger. With every $10 you give, we can provide 30 meals!

Can we rely on your gift today   to make sure our community's children have full tummies when they drift off to sleep? To make sure no child has to try to fall asleep with no dinner, only to wake up to no breakfast?

No child should ever have to experience the pain of an empty stomach. Please help today.

Oya Oliver, CEO

P.S. During the month of April, all donations made to the Food Bank will help us earn a portion of a $1 million gift from the Feinstein Foundation. The more you give...the more we get!
