From August to May, thousands of children all over the Atlanta metro area receive a breakfast and lunch at school free or at a reduced cost. For many, these meals help to supplement what their families purchase or receive via the SNAP program (aka food stamps).
However for many children, summer vacation begins a period of food insecurity, a time when they are not certain when they will receive a meal because their primary food resource, the school cafeteria, is closed.
MUST Ministries Summer Lunch Program provides lunches to more than 250,000 children in the metro area. This year marks the Cathedrals 9th year of participation in the MUST Summer Lunch Program and during that time, CTK has provided approximately 19,000 lunches. Providing 1,000 lunches each weekcosts $1,200 a week for each of the 8weeks of June and July. Your generosity is appreciated. Please help us feed children in need this summer!
