The holiday season brings togetherness, celebration and gift giving, which can be both joyful and stressful.
Imagine if your primary stressor wasn’t holiday shopping, but whether you were able to feed your family. During the winter break, many children who rely on school meals for nutrition go without, and many families look to our food pantries for help.
To supplement our pantry giving, we started Holidays Without Hunger to help families through this time of year, so they too can celebrate and enjoy a holiday meal. This year’s two food packing events will be held Dec. 15 (North Naples Middle School) and Dec. 22 (Lee Civic Center), and our goal is to raise $100,000 and pack 1 million meals.
Please go to www.mealsofhope.org to donate or volunteer, and help us feed struggling individuals this holiday season. You will be supporting our mission “to inspire and empower communities to come together to end hunger!”
