Two Down, One to Go!

Whew! What a busy day at HSP! Today is the second month of our summer-long Feed the Kids program that helps to alleviate the struggle of hunger, by helping to provide healthy, nutritious food for children in our program. HSP is successfully providing 100 needy families with 250 pounds of non-perishable food from fresh fruits and vegetables to an assortment of non-perishable goods and plenty of frozen meats and bread!

This program is so important to the families who look to HSP for help. Many of the parents in our program are worried that they could not provide food for their families, often going hungry themselves in order to feed their children, “I will always make sure my kids eat, kids come first.”

Because the school year has ended so many of the families who have depended on free breakfasts and lunches at school are now faced with the problem of having to provide additional meals for their children, “With the kids home for summer I am going through double the amount of food so this program is a blessing.”

Luckily, thanks to numerous volunteers and donations, HSP has been able to support some of these families going through poverty. One member in Feed the Kids said of the program, “This has been a blessing. I feel very lucky in an unlucky spot.”

If you would like to become involved in the Feed the Kids program, please call us: (630) 221-8340, email us:, or visit our website: for more information.
