WAUKEGAN-More than 12,000 filling, nutritious meals are on their way to Lake County children after a meal-creation event at Miguel Juarez Middle School.
Two-hundred volunteers from Lake County and surrounding areas joined Generosity Feeds on June 2nd to pack the easy-to-prepare meals in about two hours. They exceeded their 10,000 meal goal and had a great time doing it.
The meals are being distributed to children locally by the Waukegan School District, Christ Church Waukegan, City Reach Waukegan, Saint Dismas Waukegan, Saint Anastasa Waukegan and Cool Pantry Waukegan.
About one in three children in Lake County (35%) struggles with hunger. Generosity Feeds is a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding American children who struggle with hunger.
“We were very happy to partner with volunteers from the Lake County area for this event,” said Ron Klabunde, Founder and CEO of Generosity Feeds. “All of the food will be distributed through local schools or food pantries to students who qualify for free and reduced meals. The volunteers and sponsors came out and made this event possible, and we’re grateful for all they did.
One-for-one…every dollar feeds one child in need. Generosity Feeds worked with a culinary chef to create meals that provide an excellent value and taste great. The meals have a stable shelf life and are simple to prepare. Even though the packing event is complete, donations to help cover costs are always appreciated.
“We’ve come up with a formula that assembles and distributes these meals quickly and efficiently,” said Klabunde. “This event will help us give them hope as thousands of nutritious meals are packed and distributed to local Lake County children.”
Our Sponsors for this Event
Generosity Feeds would like to thank our generous sponsors for making this event possible. They include MOD Pizza’s Spreading Modness Initiative as well as CityReach Church of Waukegan, Miguel Juarez Middle School and The Meemic/Vaca Insurance.
Generosity Feed’s next event is in Rochester, Michigan. We’ll gather with volunteers at McGregor Elementary School on Saturday, June. 9th. If you’re in the area, we hope you’ll consider registering as a volunteer or making a tax-deductible donation.
About Generosity Feeds
More than 13-million children in America struggle with hunger. That’s one in every six. The number is even higher in Lake County.
Generosity Feeds wants all children to have the opportunity to thrive, but it’s hard to thrive when your next meal is uncertain. We partner with local businesses, churches, schools, and nonprofits to feed hungry children in their communities. As we grow, we hope to help kids in every county in the United States.
We would love to work with your organization to host a meal-packaging event that can build relationships, inspire long-term generosity, and feed hungry children in your community.
