MOW4Kids Tampa Bay delivered meals to children throughout Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties while schools were closed
According to the USDA, more than 11 million children in the United States live in “food insecure” homes. This means that those households don’t have enough food for every family member to lead a healthy life. Since the coronavirus pandemic, projections show that 18 million children could face hunger this year.
MOW4Kids provides an important link to maintaining the health and well-being of food-insecure children. Studies have shown that malnutrition, or undernutrition, can significantly impair a child’s health, physical growth, and academic performance. We created MOW4Kids to ensure that every child receives healthy meals delivered to their homes by volunteers – so that no child or family goes hungry.
