Hunger Does Not Take a Vacation

Team up with the Emergency Aid Coalition (EAC) this summer to be a “Hunger Hero.”

Summer vacations usually means sun and fun, but for many children in the community, summer vacation means not knowing when or what their next meal will be.

Children in need often rely on the food provided by the EAC, especially in the summer when school lunches are not available.

The risk of malnutrition in children, rises during the summer months, but we can do something about it with the EAC. 

Through June 19, barrels will be placed at entrances to collect these healthy food items  especially for children:

Non-Perishable Food Items

  • Peanut butter
  • Jam, Jelly, or preserves (preferably without high fructose corn syrup)
  • Canned chicken or tuna
  • Canned fruit (packed in juice)
  • Non-sugary cereal
  • Apple sauce
  • Fruit juice (100%)

Perishable Food Items/Fresh Fruit

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Oranges
  • Peaches/Nectarines
  • Plums

Ongoing EAC Needs
Donations of non-perishable food items and new or gently used clothing are always welcome. Place them at the Plaza entrance to the Sanctuary Building or bring them direct to the EAC in Abraham Station, across Fannin Street from the Jones Building.

Especially needed are men’s jean or khaki pants (sizes 30 – 36), men’s belts (sizes 30 – 36), toddler-size diapers, and peanut butter.
