Summer Match familyThe Food Bank RGV is in urgent need of monetary donations to ensure food-insecure children are fed this season. In response to the growing demand and need in the community, the Food Bank RGV has kicked-off its ‘Help Kids Get Through the Summer’ campaign.

Right now, thanks to anonymous donor, any donations made towards the campaign will be matched, up to $10,000. Instead of a dollar donation providing 5 meals, it can provide up to 10 complete and nutritious meals for children in need.

Many people look forward to summer and make plans to get as much out of the season as possible. For children in the Rio Grande Valley who may face hunger, summer is unfortunately a season to get through. Without the meals they receive at school, the days can be long and difficult. In the RGV, one in four children is food insecure and in rural areas, that number increases to one in two children who do not know where their next meal is coming from.

The Food Bank RGV is committed to helping children get the nutrition they need throughout the year and especially during times of increased need like the summer months when school is out. To help support the Food Bank RGV’s ‘Help Kids Get Through the Summer’ campaign, donations can be made online at or by texting ‘SummerMatch’ to 44-321, in person at 724 N. Cage Blvd., Pharr, Texas 78577.
