HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

For someone who might otherwise not have all the food they need, the gift of a simple sack lunch can provide both necessary nutrients and also a dose of comfort. By taking the time to make a few sack lunches, you'll be sharing some of your favorite foods with neighbors who will greatly benefit from your kindness.

Prepare and deliver 10 sack lunches. Lunches must include a sandwich (PB & J; turkey, ham and/or cheese), a piece of fruit (oranges are best), chips and/or cookies (small bag), a drink (water) and a napkin. Energy bars/ raisins also good. Brown or white paper sack bags and please label OUTSIDE with type of sandwich.
