Just One More Ministry, located in Glendale, is an organization that rescues excess food from area restaurants, food suppliers, and caterers and repackages them for shelters, food pantries, and community members in need.
Inflation and rising grocery prices continue to disrupt the organization’s regular streams of food, and they are in need of additional support through packed bagged lunches. These lunches are easy to distribute and are handed out as quickly as they are received. This is a helpful dinner option for kids if their housing lacks the appliances needed to heat and prepare food.
Your family will assemble 20 lunches. Your family/group will pack a piece of fruit, an inspirational care card, and an additional treat or snack (optional) in a paper bag. Separately, your group will make the sandwiches (peanut butter and jelly or meat and cheese with no condiments), wrap them in a plastic sandwich bag, and repack them in the bread bag.
Kids will assist residents throughout the Greater Milwaukee community struggling with food insecurity.
Kids will gain awareness and understanding of how they can help their community in need and have fun along the way!
