SUPPORTING GeorgiaBTA & SMART KIDS, SMART LUNCHES

Each year, in addition to supporting our scholarship fund of GeorgiaBTA, we will contribute a portion of the proceeds to Action Ministries (501c3 TX 58-2070427) to promote the Smart Kids, Smart Lunches program.  This program helps make over 250,000 lunches for the metro area and Georgia BTA has committed to 25,000 of this number for 2017

  • More than 1 million children in Georgia schools receive free or reduced-price lunch, a crucial meal that disappears in the summer. 

  • Smart Lunch, Smart Kid has served more than half a million healthy lunches to Georgia children in the neighborhoods where they live, along with enrichment activities and mentoring opportunities to ensure that their minds, as well as their bodies, are nourished. 

  • In 2016, GeorgiaBTA made over 15,000 lunches!

Thank you for your support!
