AUSTIN, Texas (FOX 7 Austin) - Summer can be a tough time for families facing food insecurity. Kids are no longer being provided with breakfast and lunch through school programs, and it isn't always possible for them to get to summer meal program locations on their own in the middle of the day.
Keep Austin Fed has calculated that they have been able to rescue enough food to feed an individual 3 meals/day for a whole month for about $7. A family of four could be fed with rescued food for only $30/month. To highlight the significant impact a $7 donation can have, they have declared the week of 7/7 to be Keep Austin Fed Week.
