Friday Café Summer Lunch Program

June 13, 2024

Looking for a fun summer project you can do with (or without) kids? Become a part of the Friday Café summer lunch program for neighbors in need by signing up to contribute 10 sandwiches, 10 servings of fruit or fruit salad, or 10 sweet treats on one or more Fridays. This is a great opportunity to talk with kids about food insecurity and give them hands-on ways to respond, like helping shop for groceries, assembling sandwiches, baking cupcakes, and creating food labels. Bring community service forms with you when you drop off if you’d like credit for time invested.

As food prices continue to rise, the Greater Boston Food Bank has released a survey showing that 34% of households in our local community experienced food insecurity last year. You can do your part to combat hunger by becoming a part of the Friday Café’s year-round homemade cooking-for-neighbors program.
