We prepared and served 1,945 meals to children this summer!
Our Children’s Summer Lunch Program was a true partnership with many agencies, organizations, businesses, and our amazing volunteers. The support that Bread for Life received from the community to feed children in need this summer was truly amazing.
Our Children’s Summer Lunch Program volunteers brought lunch and fun out to three economically challenged neighborhoods. The kids were treated to many fun activities after lunch was served such as a visit from a fire truck, the police K-9 unit, Valentine the Clown, Tony the Magician, cupcake decorating, library fun, chalk art, and face painting.
One 10 year old girl from our summer lunch program told us that our visits to her neighborhood for lunch were the best part of her whole day. She had many responsibilities helping her single mom with the care of her newborn twin siblings but during lunch she could come out of her apartment and enjoy being a kid enjoying summer fun.
