As noted in a previous post, J&M is proud to be supporting K-12 students as the named sponsor of the 2018 Give Pack Golf Classic on Monday, June 18th. All proceeds will benefit students that are enrolled in free or reduced cost lunch programs at Seneca Valley, Ambridge, and Ellwood City School Districts, as well as residents of Glade Run, Mars Home for Youth, and Pittsburgh youth connected to mission-based organizations.
We are excited to be a part of helping out such an important and nationwide initiative. According to the USDA, 30.4 million K-12 students across the United States were enrolled in their National School Lunch Program (NSLP) in 2016. Established in 1946, the program provides nutritionally balanced, low or reduced cost lunch programs for students of public schools, nonprofit private schools, and residential child care institutions.
The USDA claims 7.1 million children were enrolled in NSLP in year one, and as it expanded, the number of beneficiaries increased substantially. By 1970, 22.4 million students were on free or reduced cost lunches and that number has continued to climb. The goal of this program is to provide children with the best opportunity to learn by enhancing their learning experience through the use of healthy, balanced lunches.
J&M Strategic Consulting is committed to the cause in allowing these students to fulfill their potential. We encourage you to join us as we aim to equip over 2,000 of these students with new backpacks and essential school supplies. You can be a part of the event and create an amazing memory by placing a bid in our online auction. To learn more about the initiative or to sign up your own foursome, visit givepackgolf.com.
