Hunger doesn’t take a holiday
Every day in Georgia, more than 800,000 school children receive a free or reduced-price lunch at school. But when the school year ends, so does their access to this important meal. Of the 800,000 who receive these free or reduced-price lunches, only 13.6 percent (just over 100,000 children) participate in summer meal programs in Georgia. Because of these statistics, College Park First UMC will once again act as a distribution center for Action Ministries’ Smart Lunch, Smart Kid program to ensure that actions speak louder than words. We’ll help make sandwiches, assemble lunch bags and deliver them to children whose free lunch ends when summer begins. If you’re interested in helping out, please contact Julie Couch or the church office.
