Providing a free meal to children in Ohio

The Chiller - Columbus, OH
On average, only one in ten of the low-income children in Ohio who participate in the National School Lunch Program participates in a summer nutrition program. Summer nutrition programs, like the ones organized by Children's Hunger Alliance, serve as a bridge to fill the summer meal gap that so many children face each year. As part of our ongoing effort to decrease hunger, UnitedHealthcare's "Do Good. Live Well." volunteer initiative teamed up with Children's Hunger Alliance to provide children in central Ohio access to a nutritious meal during those difficult summer months. On Thursday, July 26 at the "Children's Hunger Alliance Summer Skate" in Columbus, Ohio, 50 UnitedHealthcare volunteers had the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the underserved children in their community.
