Posted on : Jun 1st, 2011 | By | Category: Special Events

Sack Lunch Offering!

On Sunday June 5 we will receive our special Offering for our Sack Lunch program PLUS we invite you to bring in the CONTENTS for “PERSONAL HYGIENE” kits. This includes toothbrush, toothpaste and NEW socks.  A box or two of gallon-size “zip lock” bags would be appreciated also.

Factoids:

  • We served 3,063 people lunches in the first four months of this year, an average of 180 lunches per week.
  • Projected for the year, that would be 9,180 lunches fed to hungry people.
  • We have not received any word about our Federal Emergency Food and Shelter Program funding except that in the federal budget battle, the national program was cut 40%!
  • IN order to be eligible for matching Federal Funds in 2012 we need to raise at least $5,000.
