Thanks for printing! Don't forget to come back to Marlow's Tavern for fresh articles!
One of Marlow's Tavern's goals was to create a place where people
could share a meal with family and friends or unwind with colleagues after a
busy day at work. Our restaurant is a great meeting place for all seasons where
guests could enjoy great-tasting, made-from-scratch food in a friendly, casual
environment. They have been able to do just that for the many people who visit one
of Marlow's Tavern's neighborhood restaurants in Georgia and Florida. The
restaurant's made-from-scratch cooking incorporates seasonal items and is the
reason so many people tell friends to "Meet me at Marlow's."
But while Marlow's takes pride in being the best restaurant in the
neighborhood, too many in the country face poverty and hunger. Too many kids don't
have enough to eat. There are still more than 12 million children in homes that
don't have enough food for every family member to enjoy a healthy life. Twelve
percent of all Americans have incomes below the federal poverty level and can't
afford to buy nutritious foods in adequate amounts to meet the needs for a diet
that assures strong, healthy bodies.
That's why Marlow's supports No Kid Hungry, a movement of
teachers, chefs, parents, lawmakers, community leaders, and CEOs who are
working to see that no child in the United States goes hungry. No Kid Hungry is
a national campaign that launched in 2019 by the nonprofit organization Share
Our Strength (SOS).No Kid Hungry
focuses on the school breakfast program, after-school meals, and the summer
is the most important meal of the day, especially for a child in school. Hunger
makes it difficult for a child to pay attention. The results from many studies
have shown a link between eating breakfast and positive performance in school,
so providing breakfast can help kids learn. No Kid Hungry works with educators,
political leaders, and nonprofits across the country. The most successful programs offer free breakfast to all students in high-poverty schools, provide a second-chance program that serves breakfast
between two morning classes, and offer "grab-and-go" pre-bagged
breakfasts that students can pick up on their way to class.After-School
Lunch at school may be the only meal some students get, so they go
to bed hungry. After-school meals try to provide kids with a sense of security
and stability so they know food will be available. Teachers across the
country share how important these meals are to their students who wouldn't
get enough to eat at home without this program.
When school is out for the summer, too many children don't get the
meals they need. Millions of kids rely on school lunches, but in the summer,
those meals aren't available. No Kid Hungry is helping communities with needed
funding and know-how to start summer meals sites at local schools, churches,
and community centers.
These important programs play a critical role in the lives of many
children to help end hunger and poverty. Marlow's invites you to partner with us
to support the community to end child hunger in America. You can get involved
by donating at your local Marlow's during September. When you donate $1, you'll
receive $5 off your next meal to be redeemed between October 1 and December 31. We all have strength to share. Visit https://www.marlowstavern.com/community
