NEW CARLISLE, Ohio (WDTN) - Impact Bethel is doing something about childhood hunger.
The local non-profit organization feeds up to 100 children at Raynor Park in Park Layne and Smith Park in New Carlisle .
"They tug at my heart strings a little bit because a lot of times of they're in a financial hardship it is not their fault and they can't do anything to help improve their situation," said Katybeth Layton, Impact Bethel.
Impact Bethel started feeding Tecumseh Local Schools children June 3 and they'll continue daily through August 9.
"This program is so important because kids who don't have food in the summertime may go hungry and with this program we are able to give them at least one meal a day," said Layton.
According to Tecumseh Local Schools, just over 50-percent were on free or reduced lunches in November 2010. In October 2011, that number grew to 57.57 percent. They saw the number of kids on free or reduced lunch drop to 53.15% the following year.
