SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - For the families of Sarasota County Schools, summertime can be a time when it is hard to know where your next meal is coming from.

In Sarasota County, All Faiths Food Bank works to supply everyone who needs nutritious meals via their food distribution programs. The Children’s Hunger Program will work to supply nearly 2.5 million nutritious meal to fill the summer hunger gap.

Sarasota County students and their siblings will have access to free meals. All Faiths also supplies backpacks filled with food for area children to eat during weekends.

“Nutrition, and we help the kids everywhere, and usually the best way, and when we go to do the delivery the people say hi to us and they say thank you very much for you coming,” said Francisco Oliveira who works delivering food for All Faiths.

Thirteen school pantries served almost 7,000 individuals, including children.
