Lunch Pack and Love 

July 29 @ 1:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In eastern Wisconsin under regular circumstances, 1 in 10 people are struggling with hunger. Today, the disrupted food chains, the unexpected loss of income, the additional needs and quickly revised emergency food services have only added increased strain onto what was already an ongoing challenge.

Just One More Ministry, located in Glendale, is an organization that rescues excess food from area restaurants, food suppliers and caterers and repackages it for shelters, food pantries and community members in need. With the organization’s regular streams of food disrupted, they are in need of additional support through packed bagged lunches. These lunches are easy to distribute with minimal contact and will be distributed as quickly as they are received.

Purpose: We will assist residents throughout the Greater Milwaukee community struggling with food insecurity. Children will assemble and pack lunches according to their ability. It is a fun project that will show our children that helping others is also something enjoyable!

Impact: We hope that all of the children participating will grow in awareness of their capability to help others when their community needs it most.

Activities: Your family will assemble 20 lunches including a sandwich (peanut butter and jelly or meat and cheese with no condiments) wrapped in a plastic sandwich bag, a piece of fruit (orange/clementine, banana or apple), and an inspirational note/care card (or whatever beautiful decorations your littles wish to create). If you would like to include an additional treat or snack, feel free though it is completely optional. Place the fruit, snack/treat (optional) and care card into a paper lunch bag. Just One More Ministry will be freezing the sandwiches prior to delivery to ensure health safety. Therefore the sandwiches should remain separate from the other lunch elements.

Materials: You will be responsible for supplying the following materials to complete 20 packed lunches:

  • Approximately 2 loaves of bread

  • Peanut butter & jelly or sandwich meat and cheese

  • Clementines/oranges, bananas or apples

  • Additional treat/snack (optional)

  • Plastic sandwich bags

  • Paper lunch bags

  • Inspirational notes decorated by the kids

When and Where:

Your family will complete this project in your own home following food safety guidelines.

Drop off the packed lunches outside a KIC family home (Whitefish Bay/Bayside/west side of Milwaukee  – specific addresses will be provided after sign-up.) between 1-8 p.m. on Thursday, July 29. We will deliver all lunches to Just One More Ministry for distribution on July 30.

Ages: All ages welcome to help however they can.
