The Salvation Army, Milwaukee Brewers Team Up to Kick Off Feed The Kids Summer Meals Program 
In 2023, The Salvation Army served 75,000 meals through the program

MILWAUKEE - The Salvation Army and the Milwaukee Brewers are teaming up to host the annual Feed The Kids Kickoff at noon on Tuesday, June 25 inside the Tailgate Haus at American Family Field, 1 Brewers Way.

At the kickoff, volunteers and Brewers staff will prepare 600 sack lunches for children living in Milwaukee’s underserved neighborhoods.

After the kickoff, volunteers will prepare about 1,000 lunches, Monday through Friday, for nine weeks. The lunches, which contain a sandwich, cheese stick, snack, fruit or vegetable, dessert, and bottled water, will then be distributed to children in 20 different neighborhoods (2 routes) on Milwaukee's north and south sides. 

The Feed The Kids program has provided more than 2.8 million meals to hungry children in Milwaukee County since 1990. The Brewers have been long-time partners of the program.
