MAGIC Meals: How we are Managing a Gap in Children’s Meals
Have you ever thought about what school-aged children who rely upon lunch at school eat during school breaks? MAGIC Charities, in partnership with our local pantry, Jesus Focus Ministry at Bethanna, has been able to distribute lunches during school breaks to help children in need fight food insecurity and hunger.
Thanks to our partnerships and through our own MAGIC Meals program, the MAGIC Charities Foundation has distributed thousands of meals to school children, grades K-12, through Jesus Focus Ministry Food Pantry at Bethanna, to offset the lack of access to free school lunches during the extended time of days off from school.
Because of the extraordinary need for meals to offset hunger and food insecurity, we extended our program in April and May to feeding college students identified through a partnership with a local nonprofit organization. We delivered approximately 2,000 pounds of food directly to students at our local Community College campus!
