Hunger affects one in six people in America, including thousands of children, adults and families in Manatee County. Summer is the hardest time for the food insecure, especially children who may lose access to free or discounted school meals. The Food Bank of Manatee also struggles during the summer to keep its shelves stocked. Please consider making a donation to The Food Bank to ensure that no child in our community goes hungry this summer.
