Dozens of sites in Atlanta will offer free breakfast and lunch to children up to 18 over the summer.
Atlanta’s annual Summer Food Program ends July 29, according to the mayor’s office. The city has partnered with Georgia’s Bright from the Start program since 1975 to provide federally funded meals to children who may go hungry while school meals are unavailable.
Families can get information for enrollment, among other details, by calling the city’s program coordinator, Alexis Ramey, at 404-546-3122. They can also visit the state program’s website.
Children enrolled in the city’s Camp Best Friends program have immediate access to the meals. To register for the camp program, families can go online, visit a city recreation center, or email email@example.com.
Atlanta wants to provide more than 150,000 meals to children by summer’s end, according to the city. To do so, the city is relaunching the Mobile Feeding Program on Wheels to help provide meals to families that lack transportation. Information on the mobile program is available on the city’s website.
