Smart Lunch, Smart Kid

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

Since 2012, Smart Lunch, Smart Kid has served more than 1 million healthy lunches to Georgia children in the neighborhoods where they live, along with enrichment activities and mentoring opportunities to ensure that their minds, as well as their bodies, are nourished.

Smart Lunch, Smart Kid was launched in the summer of 2012 by Action Ministries. Its mission is to serve some of the 1 million children in Georgia who receive free or reduced-price lunch at school. In our inaugural year, we served 117,000+ lunches and nearly doubled the number of lunches served in the following years. In 2016, we served our 1 millionth meal to the hungry kids of Georgia! Smart Lunch, Smart Kid partners with Georgia civic organizations, companies and congregations to purchase, assemble and distribute lunches to children who would otherwise go hungry in the summer months and during school breaks.
