For a lot of kids, summer means hunger. Those students who rely on free breakfast and lunch at school and weekend backpack programs don't have access to those services during the summer break. That's why last year we worked with the Tupelo/Lee County Hunger Coalition to provide summer food for kids across Lee County.
This year, the BreakBox program is expanding to serve even more kids. 800 students have already registered for the program, and the need is even greater than that. The program will also serve an additional two school districts this year, Nettleton and Baldwyn.
But money is still needed to make BreakBox possible! Please consider visiting
to learn more and to make a donation. $25 can provide a box for a child and $75 can keep them fed for the whole summer!
Volunteers are also needed to help pack the boxes. Visit the
