North Texas Food Bank Brings Back Popular Day Camp For Children

Summer camp aims to empower young people to understand and fight hunger

The North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) will be hosting its second annual day camp for children this summer. Campers ages 8 through 11 will spend the day at the NTFB’s Perot Family Campus in Plano participating in activities that encourage learning and compassion surrounding the work of the food bank and how hunger impacts our neighbors, including children like them.

At the camp, attendees will receive a behind-the-scenes look at the North Texas Food Bank, including activities related to hunger, gardening and nutrition. Campers also will participate in a condensed volunteer activity of packing kitted food boxes for neighbors facing hunger.

“At the North Texas Food Bank, fighting hunger together means engaging everyone in our community – and that includes getting a jump start on empowering the youngest generation to understand and fight hunger in their neighborhoods and communities,” said Director of Community Engagement for the NTFB Cassie Collins. “The North Texas Food Bank service area has the fourth-highest level of food-insecure children in the country with 1 in every 6 kids facing hunger. Kids Camp will be a great way to build the next generation of hunger warriors.”
