Looking for a BreakSpot?

childhungerWith school letting out next week, summertime BreakSpot’s are getting ready to kick in to gear; providing breakfast, lunch and snacks for FREE to children 18 and under. Florida alone in 2012 served 10,092,594 meals at over 3,000 sites. According to Feeding America:

“Good nutrition, particularly in the first three years of life, is important in establishing and maintaining a good foundation that has implications on a child’s future physical and mental health, academic achievement, and economic productivity. Unfortunately, food insecurity is an obstacle that threatens that critical foundation.”

Please help us spread the word about this program. If you need to find a BreakSpot nearby, simply dial 2-1-1 or text your zip code to 898-211 and we will get you connected. Visiting another part of the state over the summer? No sweat, 2-1-1 and Summer BreakSpot’s are both available statewide.
