Last summer, Decorah UCC and other area churches and organizations developed a summer program to help provide food for kids in our community over the summer, particularly kids who rely on meals at the school and the backpack program. Kids Lunch Club was created and provided an opportunity for kids to stop by for grab and go lunches at noontime and to pick up items for breakfast the following morning. It was a powerful thing to watch the community rally together and to get to know a variety of different kids in our community. Kids Lunch Club will begin serving lunches next week and we need you to help make it a success again this year. There are a variety of ways you can connect in! Maybe you’d like to volunteer to pack lunches (Sundays at noon @Decorah UCC or Tuesdays at 5 pm @Good Shepherd). Or maybe you are available to help handout lunches. Or maybe you’d like to donate and help fund this program. For more information and to sign up to help or to make an online donation, visit www.kidslunchclub.org. And, you can always ask Kathryn Thompson (our Children’s Minister and the Kids Lunch Coordinator) for more information on how to get involved.
