It’s Friday–Pledge for the kids going hungry this weekend

We’ve been focusing this space during the last few Fridays on talking about kids who depend on school lunch programs for their primary nutrition. Many of these children are in dire risk of going hungry from Friday lunch until Monday. 

This week, we’ve been recruited to be part of an exciting effort, focused on South by Southwest, the Pledge to End Hunger, which benefits our great friends Share Our Strength, as well as four Feeding America food banks.

One of those food banks, with which we’ve had the distinct honor of working closely in the past year is the Capital Area Food Bank of Texas. There’s an excellent little piece about one of their childhood feeding programs, Kids Cafe, at the Pledge to End Hunger site.

 

Each Friday, hundreds of thousands of kids across America eat their last good meal until Monday.  But thanks to programs like these at the CAFB, those numbers are being reduced.

Go sign the Pledge to End Hunger. It’s a great cause. And while you’re online, go follow CAFBers, David Davenport, Lisa Goddard, Kerri Qunell and all these guys here on Twitter.
