We are once again hosting our annual Summer Lunch Program in partnership with Share of Vancouver. Please join us and/or spread the word!
What: Camas Friends Church offers free, healthy lunches for kids and their families throughout the summer.
Why: We recognize the challenge that summer brings to children who depend on free or reduced-price lunches during the school year. We want to play a simple, modest part in helping alleviate this additional burden on families.
When: June 24th to August 9th. Monday through Friday. 11:30-noon. Please arrive as close to 11:30 as possible, as A) meals need to be eaten onsite and B) we need to vacate the space at noon.
Where: In the Fireside Room of Camas Friends Church (downstairs). Please use the Ione St. entrance–glass door (not the parking lot doors).
Additional Note: Camas Friends has a Food Pantry available all summer. Guests of our lunch program are welcome to use our pantry as needed.
How to help: we need volunteers to help serve meals and to pick up the meals from Vancouver. We are also seeking donations, both to keep our Food Pantry well-stocked and to give guests of our lunch program something to take away when they leave. Examples of helpful takeaway items might be: healthy (sealed) snacks, Subway sandwich vouchers, books, colored pencils, or…what ideas do you have? The more eco-friendly, the better! If you’d like to volunteer or make arrangements to donate to our pantry or to the Summer Lunch Program, please contact Kendra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
