Working to End Hunger

$14,816 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 45 people in 12 months
SUMMER is especially difficult for families as children lose access to the free (or reduced costs) school breakfast and lunch programs now offered by a majority of schools in the area. When schools close in June, parents who already face hunger and food insecurity, now have the added burden to provide additional meals for children now home on summer vacation.
By March, local food pantries, like Master's Manna, Inc., begin to experience reductions in financial and food donations And yet, during June, July, and August the demand for food and food-related services is substantially higher than any other time of the year. Sadly, summer happens to be a time of the year when hunger is not uppermost in the general public minds. 
Hunger does not take a vacation- it is with some of our friends, families, and neighbors 24 hours a day/7 days a week/365 days a year. At Master's Manna, we live by a guiding principle the "FOOD IS NOT AN OPTION"

Please help us in the effort to reduce hunger and the stress it brings to over 2,500 families in the Wallingford/Meriden community.

We CAN build a stronger community ~ TOGETHER!!

Thank you all,

Bill Pappas

Just starting to get some traction but thought I would share the reality of what is happening this time of year. This is a picture from a week ago.
Please share with whomever you think can help our neighbors secure food.

Happy New Year everyone,
Before this year ends, your year-end charitable donation can change the life of a struggling family in desperate need of food. As the end of the holiday season draws near, please remember our friends and neighbors.
