For most students, summer break means two stress-free months away from school.

However, for students enrolled in the “Free and Reduced Lunch” program, summer break can mean uncertainty.

“Five out of six children that rely on free or reduced food costs will not have food this summer,” Christopher Dunn said.

That’s why Mattress Firm and Caliber Collision centers have partnered with the Coastal Bend Food Bank to keep food on the table for families in need.

“I think it’s going to mean the world to have a meal and provided food, and continuing education without being hungry,” Dunn said. 

The Rhythm Restoration Food Drive is in full swing and you can do your part to help!

Donations are being accepted at all Coastal Bend Mattress Firm locations, as well as Caliber Collision centers. The food collected will then be handed over to the Coastal Bend Food Bank in hopes that no student goes hungry this summer. 

Donations are accepted through Friday, May 11th.
