LUNCH PACK DRIVE
Every weekday in our kitchen, we prepare 2,500 – 7,000 meals for hungry children, thanks to the help of our volunteers. You can also assemble easy lunch packs at your own location and we will pick them up! Each lunch pack should include a protein item, healthy snack, and juice/water. Ideas include: no sugar added fruit cups, chewy granola bars, Vienna sausages, apple sauce, crackers, pretzels, zero sugar fruit snacks, individual peanut butter packets, Smuckers Uncrustables, or any healthy, non-perishable, pre-packaged kid-friendly food items. You can utilize this flyer to promote the lunch pack program with your group as well as this video for detailed instructions. Contact Joey@kidsmealsinc.org for more information.
