We are proud to partner with the Cobb County Library Book Mobile to bring the joy of reading to hundreds of children in our community! The Book Mobile is making stops at several Summer Lunch sites throughout the summer and this is all made possible because of you. Your support of Summer Lunch helps us to provide food, education and love to children that don’t always receive those things.
The Atlanta-metro area has one of the fastest growing poverty rates in the United States, leaving children and families in our communities going hungry. Because of private donations of food and money, MUST and MUST Neighborhood Pantries give away an astounding ton of food a day to those in need. Households may receive food free of charge.
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 6000 children for 9 weeks.
An estimated 540,000 meals will be distributed across six counties (Cobb, Cherokee, Douglas, Fulton, Paulding, Gwinnett). In addition to food, MUST will also have a "weekly wellness focus" such as dental health, hygiene, physical education, books, etc.
