Lunch Pack & Love – PBJ Sandwich Makers

September 12 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Over 800 people are experiencing homelessness in Milwaukee.  StreetLife Communities distribute food and supplies to the homeless by delivering to them a few times a week.

Purpose: We will assist people in Milwaukee experiencing homelessness.  Children will assemble Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches for distribution through StreetLife Communities and show our children that helping others is also something they can do!

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 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches wrapped in a sandwich bag.  All individually wrapped sandwiches will be placed back into the bread bags to store efficiently.

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

  • Approximately 2 loaves of bread

  • Peanut butter & jelly

  • Lunchskin sandwich bags (more environmentally friendly than plastic bags)  **Can be purchased at Target, Pick N’ Save, Amazon and many other retailers

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 (in Wauwatosa near the Zoo – specific addresses will be provided after sign-up.) on Sunday, September 12th. We will deliver all lunches to StreetLife Communities the following day.

Registration: Available Here 

Cancellations: In the event that circumstances change and you are no longer able to assist, please email bridget@kicmke.org.

Participant Cap: 12 families

Ages: All ages welcome to help however they can.
