Help us feed the kids!:
Summer isn’t fun if you’re hungry. One in four San Antonio kids will experience hunger during the summer school break.
Many children who struggle with hunger get a nutritious meal through reduced-price lunch programs each school day, but the summer months leave a gap that must be filled to make sure nobody goes hungry.
Every year, KENS 5 along with our sponsors raise millions of meals for children facing hunger in the San Antonio area through the Summer Meals for Kids program. This year, the goal is to raise 20 million meals, but we can't do it without your help.
Please join KENS 5 and the San Antonio Food Bank to collect food items and monetary donations during the Summer Meals for Kids food drive!
How you can help!:
Here's what you can do to make sure that San Antonio kids are getting healthy meals during the summer months:
1. Drop off non-perishable food items at a partner location
You can do your part by collecting food items to donate and bring them to one of our collection barrels at our partners' business locations around San Antonio:
