2016 Feed the Kids

Feed the Kids is a summer meal program designed to meet the needs of children in Milwaukee's poorest neighborhoods.  The Salvation Army vans bring lunch meals to neighborhoods, parks and street corners to serve an average of 2,000 lunches each day, Monday - Friday, for 10 weeks each summer.

The meal assembly for the Feed the Kids program is completely volunteer supported. Twenty volunteers are needed Monday - Friday from 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. (or until meal assembly is completed).

Please call (414) 302-4300 ext. 2163 to obtain a copy of the Parental Consent-Youth to Volunteer form.  Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Groups of teens or children require one adult per every four children.
