Childhood Hunger in Detroit

Did you know over 300,000 Michigan children lack access to affordable, nutritious food. In fact, one in four Michigan children live in poverty, where the household income is less than $24,000 for a family of four. During the school year, nearly 50% of school-aged children qualify for free and reduced lunches. When school is out, many stomachs are left empty. 

Program Details/ Volunteering

This summer, with your help, we will prepare and serve over 4,000 meals to children from Detroit, who would otherwise go hungry. Summer feeding is a perfect opportunity for a meaningful weekly activity, students looking for volunteer hours, or just a simple way to positively impact the community.

We need volunteers at three different locations in the Detroit area this summer: Detroit Leadership Academy, GEE Edmonson Academy, Saint Clement Episcopal Church in Inkster.
