Community Lunch During Covid-19
Covid-19 has disrupted many of our UCM programs and in particular the Monday Community Lunch program. During this pandemic a number of local organizations who provide a variety of services to our food insecure neighbors has been actively engaged in trying to address this need in our community,
An EVERYBODY EATS grant was written and approved to provide financial support for local food providers and food for those in need of meals, has been extended to the end of June 2021. Under this grant UCM will be distributing 50 entrees each Monday at 11:30 am in the UCM parking lot. Meals will be prepared by area caterers and restaurants. Community Lunch volunteers will pack bags with flatware, desserts, drinks, fruit, and snacks to go with the entrees.
Because of Covid-19 only a few volunteers will be needed each Monday and strict safety protocols are being followed. You can support this effort by contacting Janet Poeton, for Lunch Donations of home baked desserts, snacks, fruit, drinks, and financial support would all be greatly appreciated.
