Summertime should be filled with happiness, not hunger. Unfortunately, for millions of children who depend on school meals for their daily nutrition summertime can mean just that. In fact, only 1 in 7 kids who get free and reduced-priced school lunches receive summer meals. The Hunger Task Force, Milwaukee’s free & local food bank, is working hard to fill that gap with the help of numerous partners and volunteers. Their efforts are astounding, their impact remarkable.
In past years, they have served over 1.5 million meals during the course of their summer meals program. This summer, they have 132 schools, parks and playgrounds opened to address childhood hunger.
We are big fans of the summer meal program and are thrilled that our delicious chocolate milk is a part of snack time!
