Smart Lunch, Smart Kid

The Problem

Nearly 1 million children in Georgia schools are eligible to receive free or reduced-price breakfast & lunch, a crucial meal that disappears in the summer and school breaks. Smart Lunch, Smart Kid, through the dedication of thousands of volunteers and donors, ensures that these children are fed. We will be preparing lunches for the children in the community this holiday break.  Unlike other feeding programs, we take the food to the children in their neighborhoods, removing the barrier of lack of transportation.

Our Response

In 2018, Smart Lunch Smart Kid served 235,827 meals to 7,370 children in Georgia.  We look to continue expanding the number of at-risk children our program reaches by growing the community partnerships to increase volunteerism, Locations to serve, and offering well planned enrichment programming to participants of our sites.

Your Action
