May 22 Block Walk to promote summer food program

Dear Friends,

The McLennan County Hunger Coalition would like to invite you to participate in a first step for this summer by promoting awareness of the summer food program for 2010.  Over 28,000 kids receive nutritious meals during the school year.  The Summer Food Program fills the hunger gap with meals and snacks when school’s out. Every child can receive free meals during the summer, yet in 2009, only 6.7% of eligible children participated. We need your help to participate with us in getting the word out.

Join the McLennan County Hunger Coalition on May 22 from 9am to 12noon for a community block walk to promote the summer food program.  We will focus on specific sites in three areas of our community- North, South, and East Waco.  Congregations, school groups, and committed individuals are encouraged to show up for a few hours and help us spread the word about the program.

If you plan to participate, please RSVP to Alexis Weaver: aweaver@wacochamber.com by May 17, and indicate the area of Waco that you would like to be involved in.  We will send information prior to May 22 with the meeting location, block captain, and any other pertinent details.

We appreciate all of your support to end hunger in McLennan County.

Sincerely,

The McLennan County Hunger Coalition
