    MILWAUKEE URBAN LEAGUE LAUNCHES MUNCH & LEARN INITIATIVE

    The Milwaukee Urban League (MUL) launched our Munch & Learn initiative, a MUL outreach program where we provide MUL Power Paks to students and families at Oliver Wendell (O.W.) Holmes School and Auer Avenue School. The purpose of Munch & Learn is to support students and families at O.W. Holmes and Auer Avenue, by providing snacks to fuel student learning at home, along with educational activity ideas and vital employment opportunities for the families. Power Pak Bags will be filled with non-perishable snack items, student activities, and hygiene products. In addition, Power Paks will include 10@10, ten activities for children to do at 10am. School staff will also distribute information on MUL employment opportunities to parents. Power Paks will be distributed as families pick up laptops and other school materials needed during the state-sanctioned quarantine due to COVID-19.
