Brewers team up with Salvation Army to pack 1,500 sack lunches for Milwaukee kids

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Brewers are making sure Milwaukee children have healthy meals this summer.

They teamed up with the Salvation Army to pack 1,500 sack lunches. The lunches will be distributed in 21 different neighborhoods.

“It’s just a great cause and it’s just cool to interact with everybody here and watch how it’s done, everyone pitching in and helping with the community and tomorrow the sandwiches will be delivered and I wish I could be part of that and maybe I will, that’s one thing I haven’t done. It’s just about reaching out and giving to others that are in need,” said Brewers Third Base Coach Ed Sedar.

Volunteers will prepare 1,500 lunches per day for kids until the end of August.

The program has provided more than two million meals to children in Milwaukee County since 1990.
