JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — As the economy makes a sluggish recovery, families in Jacksonville continue to find themselves struggling with food insecurity. Florida’s Dixie Egg Company is donating 32,400 eggs to Second Harvest North Florida on April 12th at 10:00 a.m. to help these families in need- just in time for the Easter holiday.
Hungry children cannot thrive. Yet millions of kids in America are at risk of going hungry.
Hungry children are disadvantaged children. They can’t grow, develop and learn like other kids. They have trouble focusing and getting along. They complain often of headaches, stomachaches and other ailments. They fall behind in virtually every way.
