Hunger does not take a summer vacation. Hunger is as real today as it was five years ago, when a number of community organizations partnered to provide a summer lunch program for children. The summer meal program is available through a partnership of Nourish, the Boys & Girls Club of Sheboygan County, the Sheboygan Area School District and the United Way of Sheboygan County.  With approximately 50% of children enrolled in the Sheboygan Area School District receiving free or reduced meals during the school year, it continues to be important to help feed children during the summer months.

Through the Eyes of an Intern

Stephanie Leonhard had been an intern at United Way of Sheboygan County for the past six months. As she leaves us to move on to finishing her final weeks of school and entering into full-time employment, we thought we would give her the opportunity to express her thoughts on working within the nonprofit world.  It was her first time working with a nonprofit and we think she learned much more than how to tend to administrative duties.  – Sandy Leske, director of community development and marketing.
