Blue Ridge Area Food Bank Hopes to Stop Summer Hunger

VERONA, Va. (WHSV)-- The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank aims to feed these kids over the summer. They have begun their summer food program, feeding Valley children who are at risk for hunger.

The food bank serves food to more than 3,000 children during their program.

One in six kids struggle with hunger in the Blue Ridge Area during the summer months.

Although the program feeds a lot of kids, it's not enough to service everyone who needs its.

"Hunger doesn't take a summer vacation so we know that children who are receiving free or reduced price meals in school are not going to have the same venue to get food during the summer so we know that the need is still there," said Ruth Jones, of the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.
