Smart Kid Smart Lunch Virtual Food Drive

April 29

Hunger doesn’t end when the school year is over. Many of the children who participate in our After School program from the Baker Glover community receive free and reduced-price lunches during their school, but when the summer comes, they don’t have access to nutritious lunches.

GFUMC will participate in Action Ministries Smart Lunch Smart Kid summer lunch program. This year we have volunteered to provide and deliver 100 lunches to the children at the Baker Glover community week days from June 3 through July 23. Sack lunches consist of a sandwich, a fruit snack, a salty snack and a drink. Total cost per lunch is about $1.25 per lunch which includes bags and other needed supplies.

Join our virtual food drive to support this ministry. Sponsor the cost of a lunch for a child for the summer and let volunteer teams do the shopping for you. $25 provides a lunch for a child for 20 days. Make your donation at one of the iPad kiosks or by check (indicate SKSL program on the memo line)

Volunteers are also needed to make and deliver lunches during the 43 days we serve. For more information and to volunteer you or your group, contact GFUMC Coordinator Mary Wall at marywall13543@bellsouth.net or 205-242-1372.
