August Mission of the Month
Lunch is Served, Inc. is a nonprofit with the unique mission of delivering simple sack lunches for working men and women who are attempting to break the chains of poverty and hunger. The offering of free brown bag lunches represents more than simple nutrition. Each lunch bag is a tangible symbol of community encouragement and support created by volunteers and donations. We will be collecting donations during the month of August of plastic spoons, paper napkins, individual-sized chips, granola bars, cereal bars, and individual-sized fruit cups. We will also accept monetary donations. Mark them for Lunch is Served. Thank you! Timeout
We serve the school and community all year through various ministries. The Hayward Canteen provides supper every Monday night in the Hayward School parking lot. A mentor program, organized by Lutheran Social Services, pairs an adult mentor with a student, who meet once a week during the student’s lunch time. This relationship provides a stable, positive role model for a high-risk student.
