Volunteers Needed for Summer Lunch Program
During the school year, 22 million children receive free or reduced-priced meals through the National School Lunch Program. When school is out during the summer months, however, only 2.7 million receive free or reduced-price meals through the USDA Summer Food Service Program. By participating in this program, we at Good Shepherd can make a difference and help lower the number of hungry children in Rocky Mount. Volunteers from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. each day (Monday – Friday) from June 15th through August 7th to help with setting up, facilitating the daily activity/program, giving out lunches, supervising the kids, and cleaning-up afterwards. Even if you can’t volunteer for the entire two hours, any time you can offer is appreciated. Download the information brochure here. To volunteer, click here.
