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 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. Once you’ve assembled the lunch items, place them all into a paper lunch bag. Sandwiches should remain separate from the other lunch elements. Just One More Ministry will be freezing them prior to delivery to ensure health safety. Cost: Dependent on what families buy for the bagged lunch supplies.
Materials: You will be responsible for supplying the following materials to complete 20 packed lunches:
Drop off the packed lunches outside a KIC family home in Bayside, Whitefish Bay, Bayview, and the West Side of Milwaukee (specific addresses will be provided after sign-up) between 1-8 pm on Sunday, Nov. 19. We will deliver all lunches to Just One More Ministry for distribution on Nov. 20. Can’t make the November event? Pack lunches for our December event.
