For most kids, summer means fun, a little freedom, and spending time with friends.
Unfortunately, not every child is so lucky. Summertime can also mean going hungry when a child relies on the free or reduced breakfast and lunch provided at school. When a school no longer offers these needed meals, how can the community step in and get involved in finding a solution? What are some ways we can make a real difference in the life of a child who’s simply looking for their next meal?
Join Metrocrest Services in helping Sack Summer Hunger.
Thanks to Metrocrest’s Sack Summer Hunger program, local families can have peace of mind in knowing there will be food on the table for their children. This summer, the program will feed over 1,800 children and we can't do it without you. With your support, you are helping end childhood hunger in our community.
Every dollar you give provides one meal to children in our community. $54 feeds one child for the entire summer.

For over 100 low-income seniors who qualify for People and Nutrition (PAN boxes filled with federal commodity foods), our Eat Smart, Live Strong is growing in popularity. With support from program sponsors we provide participants additional fresh produce and healthy foods on their monthly distribution day.
Eat Smart, Live Strong groceries include items such as sweet potatoes, fresh oranges and apples or canned peaches. Once a month participants arrive on their own at our food pantry or may request rides through our transportation service. Pantry volunteers not only assist seniors as they select their items but carry selections to their car or van.
Sponsors are needed to underwrite program costs! Join former sponsors Baylor Scott & White Medical Center Carrollton, PlainsCapital, Purdy-McGuire, Hilton Worldwide and Research Across America in supporting healthy eating for seniors.
