It breaks our heart, but 1 in 5 kids don’t have enough food, right here in Escambia and Sana Rosa counties.
No child should go to bed hungry. So many families are struggling to put food on the table, especially now with income loss due to COVID-19.
That’s why, this November, we’re partnering with Manna – a local grassroots organization fighting local hunger – by running a food drive. If you have an appointment during this month, then please bring a canned food item along and drop into our donation box.
All food items will be distributed through Manna and go directly to the people that need them. Your help could be the difference between a meal on the table for local children. If you’d like to help further, please visit the Manna website by clicking here.
