Summer Food Service Program
(or as we like to call it, Lunch Bunch Program)
Lunch Bunch Mission: Our goal is to provide youth, ages 18 and under, a positive place with engaged adults and student leaders who provide healthy and delicious lunches, enrichment activities, and community for an hour a day, Monday through Friday, during each week of the summer to foster friendships and mentorships.
We have wrapped up another successful year of Summer Food Service Program a.k.a. Lunch Bunch. We served lunches, Monday through Friday, for 11 weeks this summer in Aurora, Marquette and in our newest addition, Central City. We served a total of 5,852 lunches this year!!! That is record breaking. This means we have served over 16,000 free lunches since we began "Lunch Bunch" 7 years ago!
We also introduced 95 students to service leadership through our D4LC program. This takes us to over 2400 students in the last few years!
Thank you so much for making this summer amazing. We will be back at it next May! Thank you.
This program is offered in partnership with Prairie Plains Resource Institute, Hamilton County 4-H, Heartbeets Garden, the Aurora Mall, TLC’s D4LC programs and made possible by fundraising and private donations.
