The Summer Sack Lunch Program is an excellent opportunity for families, grandparents, GIFT Groups and others to GIVE BACK!!! Every Monday beginning June 6th through July 25th (excluding July 4th), Christ Our Shepherd will be providing sack lunches for children who otherwise might not have a lunch to eat! YOU can help by making sandwiches, packing or delivering lunches to hungry children. YOU can drive a lunch route (Fayette County) for the summer or split it with others. It is extremely rewarding to meet, feed and interact with these families/children each week.
A typical Monday is:
- Spending 30-45 minutes making and packing lunches and/or
- Delivering the lunches – takes about an hour
The summer of 2021, 208 children were fed weekly, 1245 lunches were packed and delivered to children ages 3-18, 1558 sandwiches were prepared and 2,932 cookies were made and baked. Sixteen different drivers with twenty assistants drove nine routes for seven weeks.
