What We Do and Who We Work With
Action Ministries Smart Lunch, Smart Kid
Since 2012, 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 2015, the program aims to serve 250,000 lunches, reaching deeper into the communities they serve with more enrichment opportunities. Pack to Plate provides nutrition-related enrichment activities at a number of sites each week before lunches are delivered.
Clarke County School District
Pack to Plate began providing food literacy lessons and activities at its flagship school, Fowler Drive Elementary. Pack to Plate will continue to have a presence in Fowler Drive during the upcoming school year. Activities include interactive smoothie making, digging for veggies, a great grain relay, and many others.
Athens Farmers Market
Community outreach is an important aspect of any nonprofit organization, and the Athens Farmers Market has been a wonderful outlet for Pack to Plate to spread the word about our mission. Find us at Bishop Park each Saturday from 8 to 12 and stock up on delicious fresh produce!
