3 Easy Ways to Stop Summer Hunger with Food Finders Long Beach and Rockview Family Farms

July 23, 2018

Rockview Partnering with Food Finders Long Beach

This week Rockview Family Farms had the privilege to partner with Food Finders Long Beach to raise money for their Summer to End Hunger Food Drive. With your help, we were able to raise $1,477 to help ensure that no kids go hungry this summer.

This food drive was created to combat summer hunger for kids who are no longer receiving free breakfast and lunch through their school’s state-funded nutrition program. Currently in California, 85% of students who are part of school nutrition programs are not receiving proper nutrition in summer while school is not in session.

It’s a fact that 1.9 million kids in California experience food insecurity and are unsure of where their next meal is coming from. Organizations like Food Finders LBC fight to reduce hunger in the community 365 days of the year!

Join the Summer to End Hunger Food Drive

The Summer to End Hunger Food Drive is running until August 31st and there is still more you can do if you want to help end childhood hunger. There are three ways you can stop summer hunger:

  1. Donate selected food items food items  to a Food Finders tub at any Long Beach Public Library
  2. Donate food items or monetary donations to the Food Finders office at 3744 N Industry Ave #401, Lakewood CA 90712.
  3. Pick up a blue bin from Food Finders and run your own food drive!!
