The Free Brown Bag Lunch Program

During the months of March and April we will be recognizing The Free Brown Bag Lunch. It is a summer feeding program created in 2011 by the Camillus First United Methodist Church.

 

Their mission is to serve healthy, nutritious lunches to all who come: no judging, no questions, showing God’s love in a practical way and following Jesus’ teaching to care for others. In 2016 just over 8,000 lunches were given away for a program total of over 23,000 lunches served.

 

This year we anticipate serving 8,200 lunches and our budget is $9,100.00. They are an ecumenical, all-volunteer program, and their funding is supported by the community: Churches, businesses, organizations, individual contributors, and two fundraisers.

 

This weekend we welcome Jean Whipple who is the Program Coordinator for The Free Brown Bag Lunch. A special note from Jean states: “Your prayers and support are a blessing to us, and together we can continue to make a difference in the lives of others.
