It’s that time of year again: the Summer Lunchbox Program is helping minimize child hunger in our community! Bags are packed with groceries (peanut butter, jelly, tuna, snack crackers, pretzels, cereal, oatmeal, fruit cups, applesauce, mac & cheese, granola bars, etc.) and vouchers are provided for produce, bread, milk, meat, and cheese. Supporting this program is a great opportunity to reduce childhood hunger over the summer and make sure no one in our community goes hungry!
There are four ways you can help. First, you can sponsor a family for $150. That covers 13 weeks of groceries! Second, you can give money to buy food. Simply write a check payable to First Congregational United Church of Christ and write ‘summer lunchbox program’ in the memo line. We’ll put all the money together and make sure it gets to the Referral Center. Third, you can bring any of the food items listed above to the church. We’ll deliver them to the Referral Center. Fourth, you can help pack items with our friends from DeWitt’s United Methodist Church.
