Hunger Free!  Program Information

Throughout the academic school year, many children receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch through their school’s breakfast and national school lunch Programs. However, once the school year comes to an end, hunger is one of the most severe roadblocks to the learning process. 

CitySquare, formally Central Dallas Ministries, exists to fight the root causes of poverty by partnering with those in need. They work together with the community, to feed the hungry, heal the sick, house the homeless and renew hope in the heart of the city.

In a most recent study received from Citysquare, 54% of students receive either free or reduced lunch at local elementary school in Rowlett, Texas.  Consequently, Citysquare, Tailor Made Training & Consulting, LLC, Faith Missionary Baptist Church, local community businesses and great Americans like you intend to fill that nutrition gap for children ages 3 to 18 by making sure they are getting the nutritious meals they need.

Statement of Need:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) reported that in 2009:  Of the 50.2 million people living in food insecure households (up from 36.2 million in 2008), 33.0 million are adults (14.5 percent of all adults) and 17.2 million are children (23.2 percent of all children). 17.7 million people lived in households that were considered to have “very low food security,” a USDA term (previously denominated “food insecure with hunger”) that means one or more people in the household were hungry over the course of the year because of the inability to afford enough food.

Very low food security had been getting worse even before the recession. The number of people in this category in 2009 is more than double the number in 2000.  Black (24.9 percent) and Hispanic (26.9 percent) households experienced food insecurity at far higher rates than the national average.

Our Goal:

Our goal is to organize and empower low-income families and communities to take the initiate to solve both their individual and community development problems. This is one of the only summer feeding program and alternate food source once school is out combining both nutrition and education in the recruitment area, plagued by high rates of poverty, unemployment, both high school pregnancies and dropouts and a severe lack of housing, available to low income residents.  With your generous donation we can help feed hundreds of children everyday.  Click the Donate button above and make a contribution today!
