The Teen Center at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hall County has recently been selected as a recipient of the Walmart Summer Food Program grant.

This grant will provide nutritious food, such as fresh fruits and vegetables or whole-grain crackers, to students at the facility.

The Georgia Mountain Food Bank is a partner in the grant program, and has assembled teams of community volunteers to help prepare the lunch bags. Groups from Eagle Ranch Homes, local churches, board members and other partner agencies with the Georgia Mountain Food Bank, totaling about 150 volunteers, are helping with this effort.

This partnership is an extension of the Georgia Mountain Food Bank’s outreach program, "Munch Bunch," which has been providing healthy after-school snacks for the youth since September 2009. About 300 kids and teens are served at the Boys and Girls Clubs each day during the school year. During July, this recent partnership provided a lunch for 250 children each weekday.
