Summer Hunger in Missouri and Midwest Children’s Burn Camp

by Mike Ferguson

(St. Charles, MO) – Thousands of children in Missouri rely on free and reduced lunches during the school year. Many of those also rely on school breakfasts before the first class bell rings. Some of those also benefit from take-home food programs such as “Buddy Packs” that send nutrition home for the weekend.

When the school year ends, so does regular access to food for them. This week, Monica Palmer from Feeding Missouri explains the harsh realities of food insecurity in Missouri and explains how easy it is to help those in need.

Also, Big Planet Media provides a special feature video that highlights the work done by the Midwest Children’s Burn Camp in the Lake of the Ozarks.
