Campaign aims to make sure "No Child Goes Hungry"

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI -

For many, it's now the second week of school in Corpus Christi, and that means it's time for an important application for families in need: the application for free or reduced student lunch. That includes, of course, many students displaced by Hurricane Harvey.

The No Child Goes Hungry campaign, founded by Daniel Esparza, is offering assistance to parents needing to apply for free or reduced lunch for their students this fall. The non-profit program aims to help those under the Corpus Christi Independent School District wade through the application process needed to get food to students in need.

In CCISD alone, there are 17 schools without a standard free lunch program. That means that students in these schools, and more importantly, their parents, must complete applications for free or reduced lunches. For some, it's an unfamiliar process, and that's where the campaign comes in.

"It's basically a reminder," said Daniel Esparza, who founded the No Child Goes Hungry campaign in Corpus Christi. It's an issue he said hits close to home. "The reason this is so deep to me, is because I actually was one of those students that would actually go to school to get a good meal."

Over the next few weeks, the campaign will be at area schools throughout the district to remind parents to fill out their application and even offer a hand with the process, all to make sure no child goes hungry.
