The summer months are the toughest for some families. While school is out, parents are worried about how they will feed their children.
So the San Antonio Food Bank and KENS 5 are teaming up again this year to help fight hunger. The program is called "Million Summer Meals for Kids."
You can help by donating today on FOOD FIGHT FRIDAY! It's a showdown to see which organizations can raise the most food to help kids this summer!
The need is great
Many families get stressed out in the summer trying to figure out how will them make ends meet, said Eric Cooper, president of the San Antonio Food Bank.
Cooper said that's because many families depend on children getting school lunches. The food bank, KENS 5 and our partners want to fill up the organization's new warehouse and feed as many children as possible.
It gives us hope that we are going to meet that demand to make sure no child goes hungry, but it's going to take the entire community, Cooper said.
