Skip Lunch in Full "Swing"

By Tracey Madigan July 10, 2013

Anthony Rendon of the Washington Nationals is not only supporting the Skip Lunch Feed a Bunch campaign which runs through the month of July, but the hitter also visited the Capital Area Food Bank recently to donate his time, and sort food in our sprawling warehouse.
As a pro baseball player, Rendon knows that summer should be a time for children to get outside and play, to be with friends and unwind after a long school year.
Yet for thousands of children in the Washington, D.C. metro area, not being in a classroom means not getting the school meals they depend on through most of the year.
Rendon said he feels hunger is an issue that we should all be working to eradicate. He says he appreciates how fortunate he is in his personal and professional life, and is dedicated to giving back to his community.
The Skip Lunch Feed a Bunch campaign is quite simple: Donate your lunch money for one day, and help feed hungry kids this summer.
Feed a child in need just by texting the word SKIP to the number 85944 on your cell phone. Your donation will make a big difference this summer.
