Summer Lunch Program
June 26 through August 31
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 19 children from 7 different famalies who have been identified. Then St. Matthew family and friends will pack and deliver lunches to these children twice each week throughout 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 - August 31st. Lunches will be delivered on Tuesday and Friday between 10:30a and 11:30a.
How can you help? You can pack lunches and bring them to the church. You can volunteer to deliver pre-packaged bags to the families or better yet do both. 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. (301 598 4400 or email@example.com)
The schedule is posted on the bulletin board in the Narthex.
