About

Summer can be a carefree time, but not for everyone. Many parents struggle to provide their children with three square meals when they are out of school. We think too many children - one in nine kids in Dane County - worry about having enough food. That means at least three children in every classroom don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

This summer, Goodman Community Center and News 3 want to change that, but we’ll need your help. Our goal is to send a bag of groceries home with 300 food-insecure children and families enrolled in Goodman Community Center’s summer programs every Friday this summer. Together, we’ll provide 12,000 simple, but nutritious meals!
