Summer Food Service Program 

(or as we like to call it, Lunch Bunch Program)

We will resume "Lunch Bunch"  on Thursday, May 19, 2022 from 11:30-12:30 at the Lincoln Creek Trail Head just off of McCullough Lane. The Marquette "Lunch Bunch" Program will also resume Thursday, May 19, 2022 with pick up at the park from 11:30-12:15. This program is for Hamilton County youth up to 18 years old. 

What is it?

That's easy: free food and FUN

Who can be involved? 

Youth ages 0-18, but the whole family is invited!

When is it?

Aurora: 11:30-12:30, Monday-Friday during summer months

Marquette: 11:30-12:15, Monday- Friday during the summer months.

*Neither program will serve on Memorial Day or July 4th.

How does it work?

In Aurora: Walk, drive, skate, skip, or even cartwheel to the trailhead to grab a sack lunch.  

THIS YEAR all participants must stay and eat their lunches at the site. We are no longer allowed to do grab & go lunches per the USDA SFSP guidelines. We know this is a big change for many given that the last two years, you could do grab & go. We are strictly prohibited from allowing participants to take perishable food offsite. We hope you'll understand and stay to enjoy your lunch. We will offer some kind of enrichment activities every day as well. We'll see you then.

In Marquette: Walk, drive, skate, skip or do the silly dance all the way to the park!

Often times, St. John's Lutheran Church-Kronberg, who helps us facilitate meal handout, will have grab and go veggies from their community garden too!

We'll be back serving lunches on May 19th, 2022!

While sign-up is not required, if you’d like to make sure we prepare enough, leave us a message at 402-694-3934 or at info@tlcaurora.org. We will publish menus on Monday’s on The Leadership Center’s Facebook page.
