Helping Provide Meals in the Summer

This summer, MUST Ministries will continue the time-honored tradition of partnering with churches, schools, corporations and volunteers to feed thousands of kids in the metro Atlanta area all summer. MUST's goal is to provide breakfast and lunch to at least 7,500 children for 9 weeks.

An estimated half a million meals will be distributed across eight counties (Bartow, Cobb, Cherokee, Douglas, Fulton, Paulding, Pickens & Gwinnett). In addition to food, MUST will also have mind, body and soul activity kits.

Summer Lunch will run from June 1 - July 31. Continue scrolling to learn how you can get involved!

Kids' Kit Groups

Few things are as meaningful as helping others. Families, clubs, churches, neighborhoods and other groups can work together to make a high impact this summer by building Kids' Kits to feed hungry children. While students are out of school and unable to access meals for breakfast and lunch, MUST Ministries and our valuable partners are building and delivering Kids' Kits.

Simply purchase foods from the list of suggested items and join in the fun of putting the kits together…. a great group project.

One little girl ran to her house with her lunch and came right back with half of her sandwich. I asked her where she went and she told me she put the other half on her bed so she would have dinner. It broke my heart.

The children are always so thrilled to get a book on Fridays. They run to a shady tree and huddle around to read to the younger ones. It’s so sweet. They can’t believe they get to keep the books.

Nothing was more meaningful this year than feeding hungry children in my community. What a simple way to make a tremendous impact. Our church helped MUST make sandwiches, pack lunches and take them to children in great need. Their gratitude warmed my heart and I realized there is so much I can do right here in my own community.

Once I was on a delivery route and we were short one lunch. I felt horrible for the last child in the line and my heart sank. Suddenly, a child ran up with an extra sack lunch and said he had gotten one for his brother, but he already had one. Suddenly, we had just enough! Those God moments happen all of the time in this program.

The children run to the van to get their meals every day and sometimes I get a flower or a note or even a colored picture. It always touches my heart.
