Feed The Kids

54,359 meals were served to Milwaukee area children in 2018.



There are thousands of children who rely on free or reduced lunch during the school year, and when school ends many would go hungry without help.  

Feed The Kids is a 10-week summer meals program for children living in Milwaukee’s poorest neighborhoods. About 1,300 meals are distributed Monday-Friday, June-August, to 21 different neighborhoods, parks and street corners on Milwaukee’s north and south side.

The meal consists of a sandwich, fruit, snack and milk.

The Salvation Army has provided more than 2 million meals through the Feed The Kids program since 1990.
