There are more than 72,000 students in grades K-12 at Guilford County Schools. More than 56% of these students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. In the summer months, when school is not in session, these children often do not have the same access to a nutritious meal and go hungry.
We believe that children should not worry about where their next meal comes from, or if it will come at all.
To complement the work of Guilford County School feeding centers, MeaningFULL Meals is a summer nutrition project by United Way of Greater Greensboro and The Volunteer Center of Greensboro to help feed hungry children in our community in the evening. The organizations are calling on the community for help. Donations and volunteers are needed to be sure the program has the greatest impact on feeding children this summer.
