Did you know that almost 1 million school-aged children throughout Georgia are eligible to receive free
or reduced lunch during the school year based on low income status? On a local level, 46% of students in Cobb County qualify for this support.
The need for well-balanced meals doesn’t just end when the school year does, which is why MUST Ministries has dedicated the past 20 years to feeding children in need with the Summer Lunch program.
While summer often means sleeping in or planning your next getaway, many of your neighbors are wondering how they will feed their children lunch today. That’s when MUST Ministries steps in with the Summer Lunch Program and brings the whole community together to help those in need. With countless, compassionate volunteers, MUST provides a sack lunch each summer weekday to thousands of children in eight counties. Since MUST can’t do it alone, the generosity of our communities makes it possible.
WAYS TO HELP:
> Pledge Lunches – 6,000-7,000 needed daily
> Host a Supply Drive
> Color Lunch Bags
> Volunteer in one of our many positions
