Program to Provide One Million Meals to Boys & Girls Club Members at 200 Sites Nationwide

ATLANTA, June 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In an effort to feed the millions of young people expected to miss meals or go hungry this summer, Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) announced today a partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) to provide more than a million meals to children this summer. Through a donation from the Morgan Stanley Foundation to BGCA, the "Million Meal Summer" program will dispense more than one million wholesome, free meals and snacks to children this summer who typically receive subsidized meals during the school year.

In conjunction with providing meals and snacks, the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York-Presbyterian will offer comprehensive nutritional information for all participants to take home to parents.

Boys & Girls Clubs of America, through its summer programs and network of more than 4,300 community-based Clubs, will distribute meals to hungry children.
