Local Hunger Coalition Providing Free Meals to Parents
“Have Lunch on Us” Program Sponsored by McLennan County Hunger CoalitionWHAT: The McLennan County Hunger Coalition is sponsoring a program entitled “Have Lunch on Us” which will provide parents accompanying their children to a free lunch at selected Summer Meals Feeding Sites where they can eat and enjoy a meal with their children.

WHY: The McLennan County Hunger Coalition is sponsoring and reinstating this program from a grant that was provided by Grande Communications. The program helps encourage parents to continue to bring their children to Summer Meals Feeding site locations, following the release of summer school. The coalition recognizes that many children will no longer be at a school site location, and will need to participate in the Summer Meals Program at a separate location for the rest of the summer duration.

The “Have Lunch on Us” program aspect is to encouraging parents to continue bringing their children to summer meals sites, by rewarding them to participate in the program with their children by being provided with a lunch that they can eat, and enjoy with their children, says, Hunger Coalition Vice-Chairperson, Ms. Esther Morales.  This could also “increase the number of children who continue to have access to free meals” Morales added. The ultimate goal is to prevent children from facing hunger in the summer months ahead when sites are available for them to continue to receive free meals.

WHERE/ MOBILE FEEDING SITES:

Waco Central Library- 1717 Austin Avenue (Lunch Only) 11:30am-12:00pm

In East Waco there will be two participating sites.(Lunch Only at both Sites)

Estella Maxey Apartment – 1809 J.J. Flewellen Complex  12:10pm-12:30pm

TrendWood Apartment –    1700 Dallas Circle 12:40pm-1:00pm

WHEN:  Starting Friday, July 13th Ending Friday July, 27th

HOW: The “Have Lunch on Us” program is being financially supported by Grande Communications, is a sponsored effort of the McLennan County Hunger Coalition, and is also sponsored by the Waco independent School District Child Nutrition Services as a community effort in affiliation with the Summer Feeding Program.

WHO: The McLennan County Hunger Coalition is a non-profit organization created in 2003 to combine the efforts of individuals and organizations dedicated to ending hunger in McLennan.
