Smart Lunch, Smart Kid Results: We Did It, Georgia!

We asked you to help Erase Hunger in Georgia this summer by donating 200,000 lunches to Smart Lunch, Smart Kid.

You heard the call, and you took action!

Smart Lunch, Smart Kid served 219,515 lunches — more than we’ve served in any summer since the program’s inception. Two thousand volunteers gave 23,000 hours of their time to make it happen. Congregations took a leading role in preparing and distributing lunches for kids in their own communities. And in response to our corporate challenge, 200 partnering organizations, including WXIA 11Alive, Arby’s Foundation, Gas South, WellCare of Georgia, Walmart Foundation and Sam’s Club, stepped up to feed hungry children.

Make a Sandwich. Make a Difference.

Your support truly made a difference in thousands of children’s lives this summer. We hope you were as blessed as we were by this Life-Changer effort!

We continue to feed kids during school breaks. Find out if your community is hosting Smart Lunch, Smart Kid during a holiday break by contacting our lead SLSK coordinator, Rachel Ruckart. You can still feed hungry kids by donating (text LUNCH to 41444). Remember, $5 feeds a child lunch for two days!

Thank you for being a Life-Changer!
