Summer Lunch Bag Program is a partnership designed to provide breakfast and lunch meals for at-risk children during the eight-week summer break. Through the efforts of hundreds of community volunteers, this program has grown every year since 2009. If has helped feed thousands of kids who would likely go without lunch during the summer break and has filled a vital hunger gap for some of the most vulnerable in our community.
"I was glad to have the opportunity to help with the preparation of some of the meals and see first hand what it takes to prepare the meals each day. I also appreciated the opportunity to deliver to one of our sites and see the kids who benefited from this effort. I only wish I had been able to spend more time. Perhaps next year I can plan ahead and be more involved. - David
