United Way and Partners Providing Meals During Spring Break
United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley together with a group of community partners are working to help meet the nutritional needs of children over spring break while Muscogoee County School District is closed.

Funding for the Buddy Packs is provided through the generous support of The Arby’s Foundation in partnership with The Coronavirus Response Fund.
Each Buddy Pack will include enough kid friendly food for 2 days. We will follow the current delivery locations to increase access to students. Meals will be available through a grab-and-go service to all children ages 0-18. Students must be present to receive a Buddy Pack.
We are currently working to share this information with children and families through the school district. Parents will receive information through regular school communication platforms and we will promote through social media. Please help us get the word out to school children and their families by sharing this newsletter.
During this difficult time, our utmost priority remains the safety and well-being of the students and volunteers. We ask that all individuals maintain social distancing while waiting in line for their meals. Meals should not be consumed on site.
Partners involved in this effort include Boys & Girls Clubs, Girls Inc., Cascade Hills Church, Evangel Temple, Feeding the Valley, First Baptist Church, Open Door, The Salvation Army, Take the City, and YMCA.
