The Salvation Army’s Summer Lunch Bunch

Feeding Kids In Livingston County All Summer Long

Nutrition is key for a child’s education and development, whether in school or not. Students who live in food insecure households are at a disadvantage both academically and physically. This is true for everyone but is especially crucial for children and their development. According to the Livingston County Hunger Council, 31% of Livingston County families struggle to make ends meet. During the summer, the parents of those children have to choose, pay a bill or feed their children.

The program is supported through monetary and in-kind donations as well as USDA and United Way grants. This year due to the increased need, support through monetary donations is greatly needed. The program costs approximately $45,000 to run, with $15,000 coming from community support, individuals and corporate donations. We are reaching out to the community asking for support in any denomination for this much-needed program.

Someone can support 1 child ALL summer for only $65 or provide ALL meals at one site for an entire week for only $650.

Support for The Salvation Army’s Summer Lunch Bunch program can be sent to P.O. Box 647, Howell, MI 48844 or dropped off at our 503 Lake Street, Howell Corps office.
