Each weekday this summer, children will arrive by bus, car, bicycle or foot to 20 sites throughout the Fulton County Schools district, although most will not be attending summer school, reported the Marietta Daily Journal yesterday.
These children are heading to these sites for one purpose: to be given, free of charge, wholesome breakfast and lunch or breakfast and snack meals as part of the district’s Seamless Summer children’s feeding program.
Wright said that, once again, Action Ministries has partnered with Seamless Summer program officials to make sure those children who cannot make it to the Seamless Summer site do not go hungry.
“Action Ministries mobilizes community and business volunteers in the metro area and rural areas and we help feed 65,000 children each day,” said Action Ministries spokesperson Virginia Spencer. “This program is critical, as if it were not for our partnership with Seamless Summer and other organizations, these kids could go hungry.”
