Three Square Food Bank Launches Annual Spring Campaign to Fight Childhood Hunger

Three Square Food Bank Launches Annual Spring Campaign to Fight Childhood Hunger
Contributions made to Three Square Food Bank April 1 through May 31 will be used right here in Southern Nevada and have double the impact thanks to a generous $500,000 contribution to match gifts towards the food bank’s goal to raise $2 million through the Bag Childhood Hunger campaign. 

The Bag Childhood Hunger campaign supports one of the most vulnerable populations in Southern Nevada, children. Proper nutrition for children is critical as hunger can cause lasting physical and mental challenges. One in four children in Southern Nevada live in households that are food insecure. Additionally, more than 62 percent of children in Clark County schools are enrolled in free or reduced-price meal programs. That’s more than 203,000 students.

The Bag Childhood Hunger campaign helps to support Three Square’s childhood nutrition programs, including Kids Cafe®, BackPack for Kids and Meet Up and Eat Up. These programs ensure that children receive wholesome, nutritious meals after school, over the weekends and during the summer months.

In its 10th year fighting hunger, Three Square is able to provide three meals for every dollar donated to the food bank. Thanks to the support of matching sponsors throughout this campaign, Three Square will be able to provide six meals for every dollar donated.

Bag Childhood Hunger culminates on May 5 with “Fashion for Three Square,” a special event, presented by the Bennett Family Foundation that will feature fashions by Etro, presented by Neiman Marcus, along with food catered by chefs from top restaurants in the Las Vegas Valley.

To make a donation to Bag Childhood Hunger and for further information about Three Square’s childhood nutrition programs, visit www.bagchildhunger.org or call 702.644.3663, ext. 334.
