Once again this summer, St. Matthew will be running a lunch program. This exciting program works like this:
First, a counselor at Bel Pre Elementary School will identify children (children, not families) whom she feels are in serious need of supplemental food; this year we have a group of 26 who have been identified. Then St. Matthew family and friends will pack and deliver lunches to these children twice each week for the summer.
Each lunch will have a minimum of: A sandwich; a bag of chips, pretzels, etc.; a piece of fruit or an individual serving of fruit or applesauce; a dessert; and a drink. The lunch program will run from the week of June 26 - September 1. Lunches will be delivered on Tuesday and Friday.
How can you help? You can pack lunches once (or better yet, twice) a week. And then deliver them to the families. You can donate money to help purchase supplies. Or you can bake some goodies. Donate some individual bags of chips, trail mix, juice boxes, Capri suns, etc.
The children will all be from our immediate neighborhood. If you're interested in helping, please let Konni know. A schedule will be coming out soon.
