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.

Breakfast suggestions:

  • Breakfast breads (i.e. banana, cranberry-orange) and/or muffins; fruit such as mini-oranges and/or bananas for 50.

  • Please deliver breakfasts to Diana's porch by 4:00 p.m. on your assigned Sunday.
