Purpose

Many children rely on school lunches for a full stomach and adequate nutrition needed for healthy development. In the summers, when school is not in session, we rely on volunteers to help distribute lunches and ensure that that gap is filled, and that no child goes hungry.

  • Distribute lunches to children.
  • Create a safe and welcoming environment for youth
  • Instruct children in properly cleaning up after themselves.
  • Ensure that the lunchroom is clean after each meal
  • Sweeping, mopping, and taking out the trash may be required

 

Time

  • Summer lunches begin the Monday June 26th and ends August 25th
  • Between 1 and 5 shifts a week
  • 11:30-1:30
  • We ask that if you wish to discontinue volunteering you give notice so we can fill the gap
