Posters have been posted. Cars have been blanketed with fliers. And, children all over the area are gathering canned food items for this Friday’s S.O.S. Food Drive.
The goal of the Spring Onto Summer Food Drive is “children feeding children.” When school lets out each summer, Central Texas food pantries struggle to provide food for the increased numbers of children no longer receiving free or reduced meals each day at school. This spring food drive hopes to restock those shelves further eliminating food insecurity in McLennan County. Local baseball leagues, soccer teams and youth sports groups are participating in this year’s event. If you would like to promote the food drive and encourage children in your group to donate this Friday, please contact the McLennan County Hunger Coalition at 254-224-8486 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
S.O.S 2012 will take place on April 27th from 8am to 6pm.
