June 2015 Newsletter – Pantry Offers Summer Supplement

summer-supplementDue to the generosity of the Dulles South community, the pantry will be offering a supplement for school aged children and their families this summer. The supplement will be available to families with children on June 20th, July 18th, and August 8th from 9am-10:30am. The supplement will include breakfast and lunch items which are normally provided to children through the school system during the school year. We don’t want to see any child go hungry over the summer and we greatly appreciate the generosity of our community through monetary and food donations to make this program possible. If you would like to help support this program, we are in need of canned fruit, boxed cereal, and other non-perishable breakfast and lunch items.
