Help feed Atlanta kids who lose access to free meals over summer break

More than 350,000 children across United Way of Greater Atlanta’s 13-county region are enrolled in a free or reduced meal school program, according to the nonprofit.

When summer break begins, many of those children are left hungry. To combat that, the organization launched Silence the Growl in 2016.
