School's Out. Hunger Isn't.

Donations to the Utah Food Bank are down at least 50 percent this summer, and officials say the empty shelves have come at the worst time of year. June, July and August, when children are out of school, are most challenging for families whose children qualify for free or reduced breakfast and lunch, said Ginette Bott, chief development officer for the Utah Food Bank.

In the summer, these families "don't have the capacity to increase their food budget," she said, "but the demand for food goes up because the kids aren't getting those two meals at school." That means pantry inventories are "quickly depleted" during the summer by needy families. Overall, the food bank is down about 60,000 pounds from this time last year. Food-drive participation seems to be much of the problem. [Read more on the Salt Lake Tribune]
