Lunch Bunch Begins 11th season, SIGN UP NOW!

Thanks to COVID-19, Lunch Bunch will serve meals a new way this summer, a lot like our school system has been doing. At least until July, all meals will be pickup or delivery only. May 26-29, Transition/Registration Week, sack lunches (and additional registration forms) may be picked up daily at the church from 11:00 am-1:00 pm. On our usual Kickoff Day (Saturday, May 30), we’ll serve a drive-thru meal for the whole family (parents too) from 11:00-1:00. All registration forms for bus delivery on Monday, June 1 must be turned in by May 30. We need at least 24-hour notice to add or remove students on delivery route.

Daily delivery of meals to registered students will begin Monday, June 1. If you live in or near the city limits of Johnston City, our church bus will deliver meals to your home each weekday. Volunteers will deliver meals to students living farther out within JC school district. Most days we will provide a hot, ready-to-eat meal for each child. All children (under age 18) may receive a USDA-approved meal.

If you don’t sign up for meal delivery, you may pick up children’s meals at the church each day, Monday-Friday, 11:00 am-1:00 pm.
