In its sixth year, the summer food box program provides a week's worth of child-friendly breakfast, lunch, and snack items to bridge the gap between summer meal programs and free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs provided during the school year. The program is generously funded through a granted awarded by "Hunger Is", a joint charitable program of the Safeway Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), designed to build awareness and raise funds in an effort to eradicate childhood hunger in America.
The 8,000 grant will fund approximately 30,000 pounds of food for the summer food boxes and, as part of a larger programmatic summer food insecurity initiative, provide healthy breakfast options at the Sunshine Division's two pantries throughout the summer months.
Dave's Killer Bread and Franz Bakery are also providing product donations for the summer boxes.
