Smart Lunch, Smart Kid

Help us help hungry kids this summer! Nearly 1 million children in Georgia schools are eligible to receive free or reduced-price lunch during the school year, a crucial meal that disappears over the summer break. Smart Lunch, Smart Kid (SLSK) insures these children are fed. Decatur First is partnering with Action Ministries on this important mission by providing healthy lunches to kids at Friends of Refugees Camp in Clarkston, GA. Help us reach out to our neighbor by helping as part of a large group making 200 lunches. Decatur First is signed up for the following times:

Help Make Lunches 6:00-8:00PM (the day before delivery):

  • Monday, May 28
  • Sunday, July 1
  • Monday, July 2
  • Tuesday, July 3
  • Wednesday, July 4
  • Thursday, July 5
  • Sunday, July 8

If you’d like to help for one of these dates, please sign up HERE. Can’t make any of those times? You can sign up yourself, while there are still volunteer spots left for any weekday this summer.

NOTE: To deliver and serve food to kids, whether with Decatur First or on your own, you MUST complete a background check. You can pay $5 as part of your online registration to volunteer. If you’ve had the background check in the last year through the church or another organization send documentation to the county SLSK coordinator instead of completing the new background check:

Please come join us in serving our neighbor!
