New public service advertisements (PSAs) released today by Feeding America and the Ad Council are designed to raise awareness of where families across the country can find free and nutritious meals for their children during the summer months when school isn’t in session.
Entitled "Summer Isn’t Fun When You Are Hungry" the PSAs draw attention to the startling statistic that though more than 21 million children receive free and reduced price meals during the school year, only 2 million children access free meals from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Programs in the summer.
This PSA campaign highlights the harsh reality that millions of children aren’t sure where they’ll get their next meal when the final school bell rings. The PSAs clearly make the point that “summer isn’t fun when you’re hungry” by showing children sitting out of normal summer activities because they are hungry, wishing that they were back in school so that they could get a regular meal.
