Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematics over the summer months. Low-income students also lose more than two months in reading achievement, despite the fact that their middle-class peers make slight gains in reading, (Cooper, 1996).
Last summer, in order to help combat this summer learning loss, and through a generous grant from Central Carolina Community Foundation, we provided a quality, literacy-based, full-day summer learning program for 32 homeless and impoverished children ages 4-11.

Summer Lunch Volunteers Needed –
YOU Can Help These Children Eat Healthy ALL Summer!
During Summer Camp, SLP provides breakfast, lunch and two snacks for 30 children every day from June 5-August 9. We depend heavily on volunteers to prepare and serve lunches because we have such a small staff, who wear many hats. Preparing lunch takes only an hour or two and is so rewarding for the volunteers as well as our children. We have a number of options to suit your busy schedule…
1. Choose a date(s) to prepare (off-site) and deliver healthy lunches to SLP
2. Choose a date(s) to prepare healthy lunches on-site (with food you provide)
3. Choose date(s) to prepare healthy lunches onsite (with food we provide)
