Heartland Hope Mission Helps to Feed Kids During the Summer Months
Heartland Hope Mission (HeartlandHopeMission.org) is preparing to help children from low-income families with food during the summer months when they are no longer receiving free or reduced lunches at school. With the current inflation rate at 8.5% (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics), they have seen an increase in their pantry numbers of families needing assistance with food, clothing, and hygiene products. Families with school-aged children will be allowed to receive a week’s supply of food twice a month. Heartland Hope Mission is also in the process of developing a food box program that will help provide these children affected by food insecurity with healthy food over the summer months.
You can help a child in need this summer by donating $25 which will provide them with nutritious food and supportive services for one week.
Heartland Hope Mission operates one of the largest food pantries in the state, but they are More Than a Pantry since they help families work toward self-sufficiency. They primarily serve working poor families and those facing a crisis by providing a week’s supply of food, as well as clothing, diapers, job resources, and community referrals.
