In Chatham County, approximately 4,450 school children receive free or low-cost meals through the federal school lunch program because their family income is at or near the poverty level. Many of these children will face hunger this summer when school is not in session. SNACK!’s goal is to increase the accessibility of nutritious meals to food-insecure Chatham County children during the summer by providing each participating child 21 nutritious meals each week mid-June through mid-August.
As we get ready for SNACK! this summer, we are hosting a SNACK! Food Drive during the month of May. We are asking people to help in three distinct ways.
