The Lunchbox: Serving local food to our community

New this year! Pick up a locally-sourced hot lunch and breakfast for the next day for children TO-GO, or eat on site and practice social distancing!
Adult meals will also be available for purchase for $10 each, CASH and CHECK ONLY.

The Lunchbox seeks to provide the community with healthy and locally-sourced meals throughout the summer. Children 18 and under eat for free and community members can purchase meals to support the program. Many Lunchbox sites will also feature a “market basket” with free donated and gleaned produce from school gardens and farmers. The Lunchbox also strives to increase consumer knowledge and skills about how to purchase and prepare low-cost, healthy meals.
