Keeping kids fed during the pandemic is the goal of the Mentor’s Project.
On Thursday, the group along with The Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce along with Synovus Bank hosted a food drive.
Of course, with coronavirus a concern volunteers wore masks and all donated items will reportedly be sanitized before distribution.
Volunteers told WGXA, their main reason for wanting to host the event is due to the number of children that typically rely on school lunches as their source of food.
“I don’t think children can focus and grow if they don’t have adequate nutrition and schools have been out for a long time, we’ve been trying to fill the gap and help feed the children,” Executive Director, Mentor’s Project, June O’Neal added.
The Mentor’s Project will continue to host food drives to keep Middle Georgia children fed.
