We've talked about it before, right when the kids were getting out of school for summer break. How having the kids out of school puts a bigger strain on many peoples food budgets. Many parents rely on their kids eating lunch and sometimes breakfast too at the school weekdays and then when that is gone for the summer months....they need help.
Thats where 2nd Harvest comes in. They can help out families with their food budgets making sure that the kids are getting the food and nutrition that they need...to keep healthy and growing!
Even I know that my food budget has gone up quite a bit having both girls home for lunch each day....that and having the hubby home too eating lunch each day! :) I kinda place a bit more blame on him for the increase in food! But here is the thing....2nd Harvest is now in need of more donations. There were a lot of food drives to help them out at the beginning of summer, but they are now running low and need help. I know a lot of us are in the middle of vacations, summer fun or even starting to think of next month and back to school shopping, but if you can spare a few dollars for 2nd harvest, it would really be helping out a lot of people...and kids....here in the area.
