If you have a heart for children and some availability this summer, Feed Our Kids is an excellent way for hands-on volunteering that meets a tangible need for at-risk children.

Feed Our Kids alleviates the burden for families by giving nutritious meals to children while school is not in session. Between 37,000 and 38,500 meals are served each summer thanks to selfless volunteers and support from local restaurants. The program kicks off June 6 each weekday through August 15.

If you’ve never been part of Feed Our Kids, this summer program is deal for churches, civic groups or businesses looking to improve internal morale and be part of giving back in a local, tangible way. There are still spots available the end of June, through July and mid-August.

Groups can choose to sponsor meals at a particular site for the day or work week. New groups will have the resources they need to get started by contacting Seasonal Programs Coordinator Lori Stevens.
