Hungry children cannot thrive. Yet millions of kids in America are at risk of going hungry. St. Mary's Food Bank is changing that. Join us this week for our 6th Annual Get In Bed With Mark Food Drive at the Sleep America location on Cactus 2 blocks west of Tatum...and at various Albertsons locations..
Every parent knows that a hungry child is a disadvantaged child. He can’t grow, develop and learn like other kids. She has trouble focusing and getting along. They complain often of headaches, stomachaches and other ailments. They fall behind in virtually every way.
It doesn’t have to be this way. There is plenty of nutritious food in America to make sure every child grows up healthy and thrives. What’s missing is access to this food. If families don’t have reliable access to healthy, affordable food, they can’t possibly feed their children well.
St. Mary's Food Bank provides that access to families, so that every child, regardless of circumstances, can get the healthy food they need to thrive.
