MUST Ministries Summer Lunch Program
Our MUST Ministries Summer Lunch program will begin on Tuesday, May 28 and end on Friday, August 10. Last summer we served almost 30,000 lunches out of our facility alone. This year could be even more! We are in need of volunteers to check and provide lunches, check and pack lunches, and deliver lunches.
Provide Lunches This year we need to provide full meals to our kids in need. A complete meal will consist of a sandwich, a juice box, something sweet and or something salty. To ensure that we deliver a fresh, good tasting, meals PLEASE FOLLOW THE LUNCH DONATION INSTRUCTIONS BELOW CAREFULLY. We will also collect books to deliver to our kids every Friday. The children we serve range in age from one to 17.
Checker/Packer 9am - 11:30am Inspects sandwiches for quality and freshness, packs lunch items into paper bags, places bags in delivery boxes. We need approximately 3 volunteers for each day, Monday through Friday.
Driver/Rider 11:00am - 12:30pm Delivers packed lunches to designated route. We try to give drivers the same route every week. Each driver will also have a companion "rider" If you do not have a rider we will find someone to work with you. You may drive as many days as you are available. We need four drivers and four riders every day, Monday through Friday.
All drivers must attend the drivers training class on May 23, 2013. We are offering two class times, 10am and 7pm. You only need to attend one class. All drivers will also need a companion "rider" to help hand out lunches. A representative from MUST will also be on hand to collect background check information on both the driver and the rider during each class.
