The 68 Hours to End Hunger Program
End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not for profit effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some local school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon, and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning. The goal of the program is to help put an end to childhood hunger here in our communities, one school at a time!
"Childhood hunger – or food insecurity – is a national problem. It occurs when children receive insufficient food on a regular basis and in many cases, missing meals entirely. After a while, these children also experience ‘fear of hunger’ that affects their behavior as much as physical hunger affects their bodies."

The Big Yellow Coastal Mi-Box Truck
Coastal Mi-Box team member Scott and his trusty sidekick Clover were more than happy to sponsor this years Touch the Truck Epping event. Parked alongside race cars, army trucks, boats and bikes the big yellow Mi-Box truck felt right at home.
Another day in the office for the Coastal Mi-Box team as we were thrilled to support such a great cause. Proceeds from the days event event (cash donations and raffles from the great sponsors) went directly to the children in the Epping school system who receive free and reduced lunches to ensure they do not go hungry on the weekends.
