When school lets out for summer, more than 350,000 students in Greater Atlanta will go hungry. These are students who are enrolled in free and reduced school lunch programs, but do not have access to summer meals programs when school is out.
Our partners at MUST Ministries have been serving these students for 20 years as part of its summer lunch program and have distributed more than 1.8 million meals! Their SVP of programs and administration, Chris Fields, shared two stories with us to explain why summer meals programs are so important.
No child should go hungry this summer. Click here to be a part of the solution and help us Silence the Growl.
