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.
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.
Our life changing program blends faith-based and other non-profit organizations, community philanthropists, foundations, and local corporate friends into action-based team working together to feed hungry children while also enriching their minds. Anyone can get involved, please share volunteer opportunities with family, friends & colleagues and Sign-Up TODAY!
Volunteers are responsible for purchasing the items for the lunches, preparing the lunches and delivering them directly to the community!
