M.E.N.D. During the school year, many children have access to federally-funded school-based lunch and breakfast programs. During the summer, only 19% of children in New Jersey who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals in school are able participate in a summer feeding program due to distance or capacity constraints.
To fill this meal gap, MEND’s Summer Hunger Busters program provides supplemental food packages to families in need with school-aged children. To learn more about M.E.N.D. click HERE.
