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.
Through Kids Impact Community, families and kids of all ages can assemble and pack lunches to donate to Just One More Ministry.
The lunches include 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). You can also include an additional treat or snack if you choose. Place the fruit, snack, optional treat and care card into a paper lunch bag, separate from the sandwiches. (Just One More Ministry will be freezing the sandwiches prior to delivery to ensure health safety.)
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
Your family will complete this project in your own home following food safety guidelines.
You’ll drop off the packed lunches outside a Kids Impact Community family home (address options throughout the area will be provided after sign-up.) between 1-8 p.m. on Monday, November 16. They will deliver all lunches to Just One More Ministry for distribution.
