Last summer Risen Savior volunteers stepped up every Monday to serve healthy lunches to local children through the Open Door’s Mobile Lunch Box program. This summer, with health and safety precautions in place due to COVID-19, the Open Door modified their method but is still working to make sure children in our communities have a stable food source. The Open Door has set a goal of providing 30,000 lunches and 800 snack packs to children this summer!
Ways to Lend a Hand or Show Support:
- Volunteer as a Mobile Lunch Box bus driver or assistant. You’ll pick up the lunches from the Mobile Pantry in Apple Valley and deliver to a site where families can pick up locally. Click here for more information and to sign up!
- Put together snack packs that will be distributed to children along with their lunches. Snack packs help children stay full throughout the day! For information on what is needed and how to pack and drop off, click here.
- Donate. Click here to donate to the Open Door’s summer campaign trying to raise $100,000 to feed 10,000 people each month this summer.
