No child should be hungry. Not for food, not for happiness, not for anything. If you’re in Philly or the surrounding area there’s an event going on this Thursday, August 14 to raise awareness about child hunger that I wanted you to know about. Here’s information on the event. This is a fun opportunity for people in the area to make a real difference right within their own community!
Summer continues to be a vulnerable time for those who rely on school breakfast and lunch during the school year. In Pennsylvania, only 18.7 percent of school children who rely on free or reduced-price school lunches during the school year currently participate in summer meal programs. The Arby’s Foundation, the charitable arm of Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc., in partnership with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign, is committed to helping kids get the food they need.
The Hungry for Happiness mobile tour will visit Philadelphia this week to help raise awareness about the issue of childhood hunger and increase participation in free summer meals sites for kids located in the area. The Hungry for Happiness mobile tour is stopping at the Norwood Arby’s to raise money for Loaves and Fishes. Twenty percent of sales during the party will go directly to Loaves and Fishes, a local food bank that supplies food to those in need. The event will have fun summer activities for kids such as hula-hoop contests, tug of war, bean bag toss, basketball and other family-friendly games to get kids moving.
When: Thursday, August 14 from 5pm to 8 pm
Where: Arby’s #5424 (618 Chester Pike, Norwood, PA 19074)
