WomensNet Mini Grant Awarded to Sandwich on a Saturday Children’s Lunch Program

Sandwich on a Saturday Children's Lunch Program

Woman Entrepreneur:
Kelli Gregory

Congratulations to Kelli Gregory, Founder of Sandwich on a Saturday for being the WomensNet Mini Grant recipient.

Sandwich on a Saturday was founded and created to assist children in Gregory’s community with food and meals over the weekend. It started as a summer program but it has since transformed into a year round program.

“I was informed by a few teachers that some students depend solely on their school’s breakfast and lunch programs as a source of food. Therefore my focus was centered on the weekend, primarily Saturdays…hence the name.
I purchase and/or prepare meals or lunch bags and pass them out at designated locations within the city,” says Gregory.

The WomensNet Mini Grant will help Gregory purchase more food items, lunch bags/boxes for the children and utensils.
