    The goal of TWIGS is to provide a lunch to the children who are at risk of not having a lunch during the summer months. The children identified as being at risk are those who qualify for the nationally funded free and reduced lunch program during the school year. Therefore, through partnerships with local school districts the neighborhoods where the at risk children live are identified and lunch locations are then set-up. The locations vary from a firehouse to an empty lot owned by the city. The goal is to have enough locations so that every child has the ability to walk to get a lunch.


    The quick growth and excitement surrounding the TWIGS program has been overwhelming and heart-warming all at the same time. It has become very obvious that we cannot promote/support/operate this program without the help of many in our community. From the mayor of Granite City, to the township hall supervisor to the fire chief and local fire departments to the police department, local school districts and its officials and local businesses; the program has garnered huge support and partnership with regard to volunteers and locations.


    Our cost per lunch is about $1.35. Support a child for the entire summer with $75.
