The “Grab-N-Go” Lunch program, a program at a variety of locations including churches and schools helped to serve nearly 8,000 meals in the summer of 2016. Amy Hagen, one of the Coordinators for the summer Grab-n-Go lunch program said the program provides meals to children who no longer get guaranteed meals through school during the summer.
The number of meals served were actually down this year. Hagen said how a shorter summer vacation this year may have been the reason for the decrease.
The program relies on volunteers to help plan, prepare, coordinate, and deliver the meals. If you would like to volunteer with the program, you can contact Cindy Diss at Taylorville First United Methodist Church at 824-2782.
