Central Health Teams up with the Central Texas Food Bank to Fight Summer Hunger

Central Health Teams up with the Central Texas Food Bank to Fight Summer Hunger

Hunger doesn’t end when the school year ends

(Austin) – When summer arrives and school is out, thousands of students and families can miss out on a reliable, daily meal. Hunger is a serious issue in Travis County—the Central Texas Food Bank estimates that more than 170,000, or 14.6%, of residents, suffer from food insecurity, almost 54,000 of them children.

This is why Central Health and the Central Texas Food Bank are offering families with low income a healthy, free lunch each weekday from June 3 through August 9.

Last year, we served 4,330 meals in 11 weeks to children, adults, and seniors, some of whom would have likely gone hungry otherwise.
