Calling all Hunger Heroes!
In case you hadn’t heard, Bucks Knocks Out Hunger 2019 is coming up on June 21st and this year BKO Hunger will be bigger than ever!
This year we’re going to pack 150,000 meals and provide 32,000 lbs of locally grown produce, but to do it we need to raise $85,000.
We can’t do it without YOU!
If we reach our goals, we’ll be able to supply food pantries with even more nutritious meals, eggs, and dairy. We’ll also provide even more fresh fruits and vegetables to those in need in Bucks County, through three mobile farmers markets for low-income residents, called Fresh Connect.
Did you know that 9% of residents and 16% of children in Bucks County don’t know when they will get their next meal? Hunger hits children and seniors hardest. Our kids aren’t getting the food they need and it’s permanently hurting their development. Our seniors are experiencing health problems – depression, heart attacks, and malnutrition – because they don’t always have enough money for food.
That’s why Bucks Knocks Out Hunger is fighting back by packing food pantries and senior centers with nutritious meals, fresh produce, and dairy products.
Just $20 can provide 40 meals PLUS 20 pounds of fresh locally grown produce to feed those in need.
