JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - With summer vacation now in full swing, many children around Jacksonville will be finding their only nourishment through the Second Harvest Food Bank of North Florida Kids Cafe program and its summer lunch opportunities.
Chick-fil-A at Roosevelt Square in Jacksonville has stepped to the forefront to partner with Second Harvest in an effort to make sure that more than 700 of those summer lunch opportunities come with "udder" enjoyment.
More than 60 Kids Cafe sites will offer children in low-income neighborhoods a safe place to find nourishment, have positive role-models and participate in educational and social development activities. Chick-fil-A at Roosevelt Square is helping to provide these kids with a special extraordinary meal - a Chick-fil-A Day!
The Chick-fil-A cow will visit the kids at the sites on those days, bringing a Chick-fil-A experience to them in the form of a boxed lunch that has been provided through community donations. Through each $5 donation, one child will receive a boxed meal. Donors will also receive a coupon for a free Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich for each $5 donated.
"We at Second Harvest extend our sincere thanks to Chick-fil-A at Roosevelt Square for its involvement in our summer lunch program," said Wayne Rieley of the Second Harvest Food Bank. "Through community efforts of restaurants like Chick-fil-A at Roosevelt Square and other businesses and individuals, we are able to make a difference in the lives of the children we serve. Whether it is a $5 coupon or a $500 corporate sponsorship, every gift makes a profound difference."
