Summer Meals Rock for Kids Campaign

By The WhyHunger Team

It’s officially summer, which means school is out for children across the country. While summer vacation means fun in the sun for some, it’s an added anxiety for many households. Low-income families, who are already stretched thin, have the extra burden of figuring out how to feed their children. With impossible decisions like keeping the lights on or being able to afford groceries, access to free summer meals eases this load on struggling families and provides the necessary nourishment kids need to grow.

With our Summer Meals Rock for Kids campaign, we’re determined to increase access and awareness for nutritious summer meals. Can you make a $25 gift today to support our work in the upcoming months?


It’s no secret that millions of kids across America who rely on free and reduced-priced meals go hungry when school’s out. The USDA’s Summer Food Service Program fills the gap by providing free, nutritious meals to school-age kids, but only 1 out of every 7 eligible kids participate in Summer Meals because they and their families don’t know about the program or its locations.

That’s where we step in at WhyHunger. Through our Summer Meals Rock for Kids campaign, WhyHunger is bridging this disparity by increasing awareness and providing resources that connect children with the free, nutritious meals that they need. Families in need can simply call

1(800) 5-HUNGRY, text the word SUMMER + ZIP CODE to 1-800-548-6479 or search online at to get the nutritious food they need!

We need your help to make sure that we can reach as many children and families with the necessary information. Make a $25 gift today so children can grow happy and healthy during the summer months.

Thank you for your support,
