We are within striking distance of reaching the $54,000 goal! Thanks to generous donations from Easter Lutheran Church, CenturyLink, Church of the Risen Savior and individual donors who started the wheels on the bus moving!
Thanks to CHS, Inc., Cathy and Dave DeSutter and Rob and Barb Schaller who provided a generous match that raised an additional $25,000!
It is because of the generosity of so many in our community that our newest initiative —the Mobile Lunch Box— has been successfully filling a meal gap this summer—feeding hungry children who rely on free and reduced breakfast and lunch when at school. For the past seven weeks, the Mobile Lunch Box has rolled into neighborhoods with healthy, bagged lunches filled with whole fruit, vegetables, yogurt parfaits, and lean meats on whole grain breads for school-aged children who may not have access to healthy food. Partnering local churches, community organizations, and businesses volunteer at summer lunch sites and engage the children in reading, physical fitness, gardening, and creative activities.
The Mobile Lunch Box has four weeks remaining and we could still use your financial support.
Here is how your gift can help:
• Provide healthy, bagged lunches
• Supply each child with an additional bag of healthy, nutritious food each week to take home for themselves and their family
• Deliver fun and educational enrichment activities for kids
• Provide healthy food support to over 5,000 individuals each month
