The reality is that nearly 13 million children in the United States don’t have consistent access to nutritious food. Food is needed for an active and healthy life. The child food insecurity rate in both Portage and Summit County is 20 percent, or roughly 6,350 children in Portage County and 22,570 children in Summit County. We can do more! Check out some ways below to roll up your sleeves and take a swing at hunger.
There are many ways to donate to the Ben Curtis Family Foundation that don’t involve financial support. In-kind donations help us in our fight against childhood hunger. Learn more about giving back by giving a gift.
