SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4) — In an effort to address child hunger, Burger King distributed thousands of punch cards for summer meals to students in the Granite School Districts on Monday.

Each year, HB Boys, which manages several Burger King restaurants, partners with the Granite Education Foundation to provide a punch card for summer meals to each student at select schools.

This year, all students from Whittier, Granger, Lincoln, Redwood and Mill Creek Elementary Schools received a punch card good for 10 free meals at their local Burger King. There are 2,284 students in total.

According to a press release, summertime brings an extra challenge for the students who rely on the “Free and Reduced Lunch” program.

“The Burger King Summer Meal Program is designed to help reduce the stress and anxiety that comes with food insecurity by ensuring these children receive at least one meal per week throughout the summer,” said Gary Moore, owner of HB Boys , LC – Burger King® restaurants.

Representatives from HB Boys, LC – Burger King® Restaurants met with representatives from the Granite Education Foundation to deliver the Summer Meal punch cards to participating schools on Monday, May 22.

“We are grateful to our partners at HB Boys who are taking steps to address child hunger and help build stronger communities,” said Jadee Talbot, executive director of the Granite Education Foundation.
