MILWAUKEE -- The Salvation Army and the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, June 4 teamed up to host the annual Feed The Kids Kickoff.
At Tuesday's kickoff, volunteers prepared 1,200 bag lunches for children living in Milwaukee’s under-served neighborhoods. After the kickoff (June 17 to Aug. 23), officials said volunteers would prepare about 1,500 lunches per day.
The lunches, which contain a sandwich, cheese stick, snack (every Friday) and 100% fruit juice would then be distributed to children in 21 different neighborhoods (three routes) on Milwaukee's north and south sides.
The Feed The Kids program has provided more than two million meals to hungry children in Milwaukee County since 1990. The Brewers have been longtime partners of the program.
