Cinco Ranch Community Council would like to invite you to participate along with a monthly giving back project. Each month, the council will be offering a different program that allows our residents to easily give back to the community.
In late August and throughout September, the Cinco Ranch Community Council will be partnering with the Lunches of Love working to help supply their Weekend Edition Program that supplies over 2,200-weekend meals for children in need. Children who rely on free or reduced lunch during the school year go home to little or no meals on weekends. With your help, Lunches of Love is working hard to end the very real problem of childhood hunger in our community.
Did you know?
“Texas ranks 3rd in the nation for food insecurity, meaning one in five adults and one in four children in our state are hungry, and that is simply unacceptable.” – Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner, Todd Staples.
Hunger impairs our children’s health in significant and long-lasting ways:
- Impedes growth and development
- More illness, including stomach- and headaches, colds, ear infections, and fatigue
- Poorer mental health
- More hospitalizations
- Have impaired cognitive functioning and diminished capacity to learn
- Achieve lower test scores and overall school performance
