"I have had so much fun this summer visiting children from Orlando toLos Angeles, writing songs, singing with them and working to provide laughter and fun in their day," Katharine said in a press release issued Tuesday. "The Hunger-Free Summer initiative has been truly rewarding for me and I hope the awareness does not end when children go back to school, because unfortunately, hunger doesn't fully stop when school starts."
That press release also states that "19.5 million children receive free and reduced-price meals at school. But during the summer months, only 2.2 million children participate in the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)." According to a recent report, Texas has the second highest rate of child hunger in the United States at a rate of 25 percent.
