If you’ve followed my blog for any length of time at all, you know I’m a huge supporter of No Kid Hungry and I’m very proud to be part of their blogger team!
Summer vacations have started here in Southern California. A lot of kids are excited to be out of school! They are busy splashing in pools, playing with friends and riding their bikes around the neighborhood! Did you know, for some kids though, summer is the worst time of year? Many children who rely on school meals struggle to get enough to eat during the summer months. The free breakfasts and lunches they get when class is in session, ends when the school year ends. Can you imagine the joy of childhood summers marred with worry over when you might get your next meal? 1 in 5 children in America struggles with hunger every day. It’s worse during the summer. There has to be a better way to get food to the kids who so desperately need it!
Thankfully, there are people working hard to making a difference. Chefs from all across the country are participating in No Kid Hungry’s Chef Cycle. Chefs are getting on their bikes and riding for three days (up to 300 miles!) to raise money and help #savesummer for millions of kids! Nearly 50 chefs and restaurant professionals from all across the country will be riding from either New York City to Washington DC June 7th – 9th or from Santa Barbara to San Diego June 14th – 16th! And you can follow their progress on Facebook and Twitter!
