SUMMER FOOD PROGRAM

Did you know over 91,000 children are eligible for free/reduced meals in Gwinnett County? One out of five children in our community are "food in-secure" (not sure if they will have a meal).  The families of the North Gwinnett Co-Op (NGC) depend on the school systems to feed their children.  Summer is a difficult time of year for our families.  Children are hungry in our community.   Last year NGC created the Summer Meal Program.  This program allowed our families to receive food twice in the months of June and July.  In 2014, NGC provided summer meals to over 1,500 children.  WE NEED YOUR HELP to ensure the children of our community are not hungry during the summer.  .   

Help us feed the children in our community by becoming a summer sponsor or conducting a summer food drive.
