Call to Action: Help Feed the Hungry Children in Ferguson

Foodbank_logo

The public schools in Ferguson, Missouri will remain closed until at least August 25 due to the unrest in the community and out of concern for the safety of students.  The delayed opening of the school year has resulted in many children going without adequate food.  Students who receive free or reduced school lunch sometimes rely on that lunch as their only or most substantial, nutritious meal of the day. According to the US Department of Agriculture, when school is out of session 90% of students lose their access to that meal, which creates food insecurity.

Please answer this direct call to action to feed the children of Ferguson.

Please answer this call to action regardless of your opinion about the facts concerning what happened between Officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown.

Please answer this call to action regardless of your opinion of how the police have responded to the protesters or how the protesters have responded to the police.

Please answer this call to action because children should never be punished during times of civil unrest or have their well being put into jeopardy.

 
ACTION ITEMS:

Donate to the Feed The Children Of Ferguson campaign on Fundly.

Donate directly the St. Louis Area Food Bank, with the option of committing to a monthly donation.

Volunteer your time at the St. Louis Area Food Bank to sort and package food, if you’re in St. Louis.
