Child Hunger in America

Since March 2020, food insecurity rates across the nation for families with children has risen to 17 million — 6 million more than before the pandemic. Close to 1 in 5 U.S. families reported in December that they did not have enough food (There is a 22% rate of Family Hunger in Maryland). Black and Hispanic children have been disproportionately impacted — they are twice as likely as white children to face hunger, nationally — almost 4 times as likely to face hunger in Maryland.

With many children in Harford County depending on school for meals, Summer Vacation means food insecurity rates will rise.

Summer Snack Club

Every Wednesday, June 29th – August 17th, 2022

Our Summer Snack Club is returning!  Last year, our Club was able to feed nearly 1,000 individuals. Our program is designed to help feed children and families in need throughout the summer with a fun program designed to encourage kids to eat healthy and have fun! Starting on June 29th, our Club will be open from 10AM- 12PM for eight weeks. Families can stop by HCAA for a bag of food, giveaways, treats, music and activities.

The bags include mac & cheese, soup, tuna/chicken salad kits, breakfast bars, drinks, dried fruit, nuts, pretzels, apple sauce, fruit cups, cereal, shelf stable milk, among other things.  We also get fresh produce each week.  This creates a fun way for children and families to get additional food throughout the summer, without it feeling like there is a stigma attached.

Our Club is free of charge to those in need. Any families with children 18 and younger are welcome to join our Summer Snack Club. We are heavily focusing on families in need from our county’s Title One Schools.
