For too many kids, when school’s out, the hungry season begins. Nearly 300,000 New Jersey children rely on school breakfasts and lunches as their only reliable source of food each day. In order to help ensure that the children of the IFPO have enough food this summer, we provided special Hunger Busters bags three times this summer. These bags contained child-friendly foods like low-sugar cereal, cheese sticks, bananas, peanut butter, eggs, canned tuna and chicken, whole wheat penne, baby carrots, and whole wheat bread.

Our thanks to MEND and to the sponsors of the Prudential Golf Outing, whose generosity helped underwrite this program.
Thanks also to Justin Baltuch, who collected reusable bags for a mitzvah project, which we used for our July Hunger Busters program.
