End Summer Hunger

Summer should be a time for children to enjoy playtime with friends, a week at camp, a family vacation, or time at the pool. But for many children, summer can mean hunger. Santa Barbara County children receiving free or reduced-priced lunches during the school year may go hungry in the summer. Together we will distribute over 37,000 nutritious meals to 3,255 children this summer. Your donation funds our Picnic in the Park program, which provides over 36,000 free nutritious lunches and enrichment activities for children and their families all around the county.
