week 1 lunchThis is a community wide effort to provide lunches for children during the summer.  Our sincere thanks goes to the following folks who have helped make this possible.

Methodist Church women’s group
Methodist Church men’s group
Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church
Linn Valley Community Church

Lesli Mitzner & Cub Scout Troop
Candy Teagarden
Our Summer Food Action Team Members
Kathy Goul & Marais des Cygnes Extension
Diane Burnett & Healthy Communities Group through Methodist Church
and the Library Board and Staff for allowing their facilities to be used to host meals.

Thanks also to grant from Baehr Foundation–First Option Bank Trust for funds to help provide Entertainment Wednesdays and other Summer Reading activities which are in addition to the summer lunch program.

Thanks also to a Summer Reading Grant from Dollar General to work with early literacy activities and games for use during summer lunch and summer reading.

We have 3 people signed up so far to participant in Career Tuesdays (sharing with the children during lunch about your job):  Dr. Lindsey Jaccard, chiropractor, Jada Hodgson, attorney, pastor, writer, and Kim Ryan, nursing.  I still need more volunteers to share their careers with kids on Tuesdays.
