The Lunchbox seeks to provides the community with healthy and locally-sourced meals throughout the summer. Children eat for free and the community can purchase a fresh and local feel-good lunch with proceeds helping to support the free summer meals program. The Lunchbox also strives to increase consumer knowledge and skills about how to purchase and prepare low-cost, healthy meals.
How it works:
Summer Meal Program Site: We produce and distribute free meals for children 18-years-old and under through a 10-week summer meal program.
Community members can purchase a fresh and local feel-good lunch with all proceeds helping to support the free summer meals program.
Food Tastings: We celebrate and promote local foods and healthy eating through food tastings at local retail stores and community events.
Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program: We work to increase access to healthy, local food through a coupon program at retail grocery stores for SNAP recipients. Coupon Program FAQ
