A Full Summer


Cooking PotTomato GirlWhat is A FULL SUMMER?

A FULL SUMMER is a food packaging event that will bring together volunteers prepared to donate time and money to package meals for the hungry and food insecure in our local area. This is an extraordinary event of giving and caring where neighbors, congregations, memberships, work groups,and communities — anyone of any age or background can participate and extend love to those in need.

Why do we do this?

Summer is a critical time for children who depend on free or reduced price school lunches. When school is out, many of these children do not have a reliable source of food. Meals prepared at A FULL SUMMER will be distributed by Second Harvest of the Big Bend to low income children and families in the Big Bend community. By participating in A FULL SUMMER, we are making a difference in a child's life by ensuring that he or she has nutritious meals.

When will A FULL SUMMER take place?

REGISTRATION IS FULL for the next A FULL SUMMER event, which will take place on June 4, 2016 from 10am to Noon at Godby High School.
