Food banks and food pantries different places have different matching grant schedules. Summer is especially hard on children who are away from school lunch and.breakfast.
There are a lot of food ministries who do not take part in federal programs USDA food at foodbanks or believe God has shown them ways to help that don't fit food bank rules and patterns for ex Atlanta food bank says they have to be open 2 days a week for a set number of houts but some placed do emergency calls only or one day a week or month and therefore get no help from food bank and therefore no help from postal food drives. Ex our ministry fed 1100 people last week thanks to Americans Helping Americans and totally not connected to food bank help. We have a freezer, do not have refrigerated foods but because we do not have refrigerator of x capacity for not storing foods we do not offer we would not be eligirble for food bank in our area. Food banks do a lot of good but the and their affiliates are not the only ones who help. It is good to see who helps in your area and how they do it and pray about helping them directly as the Lord leads.

it is vital to feed those less blessed. We never know if sometime down the road, we may need somebody to feed us.

Baby food and "junior" foods too and if pop top cans do not cost more buy poptop because someone who needs food because they lost their home in a fire, are fleeing domestic violence, are homeless for any reason may not have a can opener

Default Summer challenge

In most parts of the US children and teens whose families have limited income get free lunch and or breakfast at school but what happens during summer vacation? There are some good summer food programs but for many families who are already straining to afford good food summer is an especially hard time. Please consider helping either by doing something directly for a family you know is having challenges, by offering extras from your garden to anyone who needs it, by helping with a community summer food program, donating to your church or community food pantry or by giving to an organization like Americans Helping Americans that provides food to helping ministries and agencies. Americans Helping Americans is part of Christian Relief and works especially to help families in Appalachia,
