SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Syracuse community members help students in the city school district by feeding them during their spring break. Syracuse's National Action Network will put on Feed the Children Week next week. The goal is to help low-income families in the city.
Children who are on break from school can go to any of the event locations during the week to eat a full and healthy meal. Organizers said many parents in the city aren't home when their kids are on break, so they are less likely to get a nutritious meal.
"The food is always made fresh so it's not that we're giving canned food away, opening it up and putting it, no. Everything is made fresh from scratch so they're getting good meals. They're getting milk, they're getting good vegetables, they're getting good fruit, which will help them during that week to maintain their minds to maintain their spirits so they could make it the next week going to school," said Andrea Davenport, Vice President of National Action Network.
The event will be held April 9th to April 13th this year. If you would like to donate money or food to feed the children, stop by the Southwest Community Center in Syracuse.
