Summer is near, which means one thing: the GRACE Feed Our Kids program is almost here! We are so excited about this year’s program, because we know many children will be able to grab a good bite to eat for lunch – and it’s all possible through the help of our wonderful volunteers.
The GRACE Feed Our Kids is a spring and summer program started in 2005 which provides lunches for children across the community at designated sites close to their homes. Most of the children qualify for reduced or free lunches at during the school year. Lunches are served by many individuals, civic groups, clubs, and organizations in the community.
This week was the Feed Our Kids Kickoff meeting. GRACE staff spoke about the success of this year’s spring break Feed Our Kids and how it generated a lot of buzz around the community, which is always great especially leading into the summer.
Feed Our Kids runs solely from our volunteers. Volunteers have a chance to serve at various sites for a day or a week. They participate in fun games and activities with the children, ensuring each child leaves with a smile of their face.
Feed Our Kids will officially begin on Monday May 30th and runs through August 12th. We still have shifts that need to be covered by you and your team. If you or an organization, group, club, team or anyone that you may know, would want to serve in our Feed Our Kids program, please contact Beth Chernik at firstname.lastname@example.org now
