KSLA News 12 Editorial: May 12th-Summer Hunger

School is about to let out for summer vacation. When that happens hundreds of children in the ArkLaTex are in danger of going hungry.

That's because these children rely on subsidized lunches at school. In fact, more than 23% of children in Louisiana are what's known as food insecure.

There is something we can do about it. There is a network of food banks in our area that provide free, nutritious meals to children in need throughout the summer.

They are the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, the East Texas Food Bank, Harvest Texarkana and the Regional Food Bank. If you are members of a church or civic organization or have kids in school, organize a food drive and support these ArkLaTex food banks. Let's help keep our kids from going hungry this summer.

I'm James Smith.
