Stop in for a meal and feed a hungry child at T.C. Eggington’s
Here in the East Valley the majority of schools are gearing up to shut down for the summer. For some families, school lunch programs are a saving grace, ensuring that their children are getting a balanced meal while at school, when they may not be able to always afford to feed them properly any other time. While this can be quite difficult for some to understand, it is a stark reality for some disadvantaged families.
T.C. Eggington’s is doing their part to ease that stress for children in the Tempe Union High School District’s Summer Food Service Programs around the East Valley. The program feeds underprivileged children ages 18 and under who do not have access to regular meals. These important organizations provide free, healthy breakfast and lunch that meet Federal nutrition guidelines to elementary and high school aged children in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children when school is not in session.
“It is a cause that is highly underfunded and often overlooked,” said Kathy Coker, owner of T.C. Eggington’s. “We want to take this opportunity to support adolescents in need to make sure they are fed healthy meals during a time that many go unsupported.”
You can help out this great organization by stopping into T.C. Eggington’s throughout the month of May and enjoying any of their breakfast, lunch or brunch-friendly cocktails and 10% of your bill will be donated to the Summer Food Service Programs.
T.C. Eggington’s is open daily from 6:30am-2:30pm and is located at 1660 South Alma School Road in Mesa. For more information call 480-345-9288.
