TWIGS

The goal of TWIGS is to provide lunch to the children who are at risk of not having lunch during the summer months. The children identified as being at risk are those who qualify for the nationally funded free and reduced lunch program during the school year. Therefore, through partnerships with local school districts, the neighborhoods where the at-risk children live are identified and lunch locations are then set up. The locations vary from a firehouse to an empty lot owned by the city. The goal is to have enough locations so that every child has the ability to walk to get lunch.
