Lunch suggestions and instructions:
Individually, well-wrapped (in plastic) plain cheese sandwiches, lunchmeat and cheese, PB&J (although some have PB&J fatigue), or be creative. Instead of using bread, consider providing wraps.
Other items you might want to include: a piece of fruit (not apples as they're hard on teeth) or fruit cups, a snack, like chips, pretzel, nuts, etc., maybe something sweet, a napkin, something to drink.
Please place lunches in brown paper bags and mark them to indicate the type of sandwich inside.
Make sure you label any food items with garlic, gluten, or meat.
Please do not make sandwiches more than two days ahead of time or, according to health advisory, they will be thrown away.
The assigned number of lunches should be delivered to the designated agency by 10:30 a.m. on your assigned day.
