Martie Moore, the coordinator for the lunch program at First Presbyterian Church, said every week day of the summer 13 volunteers gather at the church to make sandwiches for the children.
children across eight counties for 10 weeks during the summer.
"I think the most important part of the story is how many children are being fed every day," Cagle said. "It's a monumental undertaking."
"The best thing has been getting to know all the volunteers and the volunteers getting to know each other," Moore said. "It just kind of builds the community in our church and we also have volunteers from other churches."
Chris Fields, senior vice president of programs and administration at MUST Ministries, said the summer lunch program has been around for 19 years. Groups of volunteers meet at churches in Bartow, Cherokee, Cobb, Forsyth, Gwinnett, north Fulton, Paulding and Pickens counties five days a week to make, pack and deliver lunches to nearly 6,000 Nike Air Max Accelerate 2
This is the seventh week of the 10 week program, and Fields said 158,000 meals have been delivered so far this summer in MUST's coverage area. By the end of the program, Fields said 250,000 lunches will have been delivered across the area, and 100,000 will be delivered in Cobb.
we have choices to dial two for Spanish. Go figure.
Maybe you would be better served to volunteer a little while and actually see what positive impact you can have on the community. Congrats to both MUST and Chick Fil A for their outstanding community involvement. They know it is not the kids fault for their circumstances.

Chick fil A MUST team to prepare meals for children
MARIETTA Chick fil A owners worked together to provide 5,900 lunches Wednesday for children across seven counties who receive free and reduced lunches at school.
You forget the Republicans don't want anything to do with birth control or sex education. Remember their motto is remove all funding from Planned Parenthood. Remember the Supreme Court just said some companies don't have to provide it in their health care benefits. So what mandatory birth control education would you like to provide.
"They come in and sometimes they're all dirty from playing outside all morning, and they're so cute, and they say 'thank you,'" Moore said. "This way, you don't worry so much about them."
Darley said he thinks it is important for his business to support and serve the community it's in, so he was excited to work with 60 other Chick fil A franchise owners to deliver the lunches.
Chris Darley, who owns the East Lake Chick fil A on Roswell Road, said his restaurant donated 380 meals for volunteers at the First Presbyterian Church off Church Street near the Square to deliver on its three routes. Darley said each meal includes a Chick fil A chicken sandwich, chips and a cookie.
"(The owners) wanted to do something together that we couldn't do on our own," Darley said.
Moore, who teaches art classes at Burruss Elementary School, said she enjoys seeing the children over the summer.
Kaye Cagle, a spokeswoman for MUST Ministries, said businesses, families and senior assisted living homes frequently donate some meals and food to the program through local churches. This is the first time a business has agreed to donate meals to feed every child for a day as Chick fil A did Wednesday, she said.
Sixty Chick fil A locations surrounding Atlanta donated the food and time to make thousands of lunches that were then sorted and delivered by MUST Ministries.

Oh Honest Abe,
They are dirty from playing outside all morning? This indicates to me, I hope, that a parent was at home supervising their play outside, and I ask, why was this parent at home instead of working for children they cannot provide for? Let me guess. Because somebody needs to speak English in the family. And it is the kids MUST is serving. God helps those that help Air Max Black Green themselves. What do these families that receive these handouts do in return of living in the United States that supports them? Oh, I know. They absolutely insult all of us that pay taxes that ensure their kids have meals because we have to dial one for English. And we pay more for EVERYTHING because there Air Max 95 Ultra Se White
