RINCON, GA (WTOC) - Two local dental offices are trying to make sure kids have a bite to eat to keep from going hungry.
Sandfly Family Dental and Premier Dental Designs in Rincon announced their offices will be collecting food donations through August 18 for the Second Harvest Food Bank's Kids Café. They are looking for non-perishable foods like peanut butter, granola bars, mac and cheese, juice boxes and water.
The Kid's Cafe helps to feed children who have limited food during the school, but it also helps with tutoring and homework. The café is happy these two dental offices are helping out.
"They work with a lot of families so they see a lot of school kids come in and see the need in their own community. You know 64 percent of the children in Chatham County qualify for free or reduced meals, so that's a lot of kids that need help," said Mary Jane Crouch, with the Second Harvest Food Bank.
The food drop-off locations during business hours are at Sandfly Family Dental, on Skidaway Road, in the Norwood Market in Savannah and Premier Dental Designs, 5871 Hwy 21 S, in Rincon.
