Lunch Bunch Begins Home Stretch

Daily meals continue this week, Monday through Friday. We still need volunteers in the kitchen, for student activities, and security. We serve lunch to students ages 1-18 (plus parents, caregivers, and volunteers) weekdays, 11:30 am – 12:30 pm until August 3. We are planning a closing program Friday night, August 3 for all Lunch Bunch students and their parents. Come join us and connect with these families.

Reminder about the program, Friday, July 6. It is water slide day. We will get very wet. EVERYONE must wear a shirt! Boys, girls, moms, dads, grandmas, grandpas, cooks, EVERYONE! And please pray that rain stays away!

Lunch Bunch Grand Finale: A Free Drama & Music Mini-Camp

The New Life Drama Company will join us during the last week of Lunch Bunch (July 30-August 3) and will help with our first-ever Drama & Music Mini-Camp. Students in elementary, middle school, and high school may sign up for afternoon sessions with NLDC to prepare for a closing program on Friday evening, 7:00 in the auditorium. Application forms are available at Lunch Bunch or may be completed online here. This program is free to all participants.

If you know students who may be interested in this program, please pass along this information. We also need adult volunteers to help in the afternoons during the mini-camp.
