The Salvation Army, Chick-fil-A Team Up To Feed Milwaukee Children
Feed The Kids summer meals program reaches fourth week
WHO: Chick-fil-A and The Salvation Army
WHAT: The Salvation Army’s Feed the Kids program has reached its fourth week. Traditionally, lunches are served from a large traveling van and include a either a ham, turkey, salami or uncrustable sandwich, a cheese stick, and one serving of 100% fruit juice. This Wednesday, as a special treat, volunteers will distribute 1,500 Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches out of a Chick-fil-A food truck. The Chick-fil-A cow mascot will also make an appearance.
WHEN/WHERE: Wednesday, July 10 from 11 a.m. to 1:50 p.m. at 21 stops across Milwaukee County. If you would like video or sound, please come to Carver Park, 911 W. Brown St. Milwaukee, WI 53205 from 12:40 p.m. to 1 p.m.
WHY: There are thousands of children who rely on free or reduced lunch during the school year and when school ends many would go hungry without the help. The Feed The Kids summer meals program will last until August 23, 2019. So far, The Salvation Army has served 13,000 meals to children this summer.
