Summer Food Support
Addressing childhood hunger in promoting proper development and to prevent suffering is a primary concern to the Community Storehouse. Our motto has been "School is out, but kids on free and reduced lunch must still be fed through the summer months."
Summer Food Box Program
In the spring semester, school counselors identify students who can benefit from supplemental food over the summer months and encourage parents to register. The Summer Food Box program provides these families with a box of kid-friendly supplemental food in June, July and August. Volunteers assemble, pack and distribute Summer Food Boxes adding children’s books, bread, fresh fruit and vegetables to the distribution as available.
