Show Notes

The summer season brings a different concern for many children - how will they get enough food? MUST Ministries, a Marietta-based organization, has been running the Summer Lunch program for 28 years to address this issue. The program, which relies on donations, serves Cherokee and seven other counties, providing meals to children in need. Last year alone, they served over 6,370 children with a record-breaking 544,450 meals in just nine weeks. However, inflation has increased food costs, putting strain on MUST's supplies and partner organizations like the Atlanta Community Food Bank. To combat this, MUST provides "Kids' Kits" containing five breakfasts, five lunches, drinks, and snacks. They encourage donors and groups to assemble these kits as a fun activity that can make a real difference in these children's lives. Donations can be made through MUST's Amazon Wish List or dropped off at their Donation Center in Marietta. The program is crucial because it directly impacts thousands of children who rely on free or reduced lunches during the school year.
