B.I.G. Feed is the program our church runs during the summer to supply (mildly) healthy sack lunches to the modular home park 1 mile from our church.
What is the cost to feed a child?
One Sack Lunch = $1.55
Month of Lunches = $12.40
Summer of lunches for one = $35.65
One week of B.I.G. Feed (400 lunches) = $620.00
Eleven weeks of summer (4400 lunches) = $6,820.00
We use SignUp Genius to help determine when we have adequate help. You may sign up to prepare sandwiches, deliver lunches, or oversee the library. Or, you can simply show up in the church kitchen at 5 p.m. on Sunday afternoons or at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays to make sandwiches, or at 11:00 a.m. on Mondays and Thursdays for delivery of lunches. (Remember that you have to be at least 18 and have completed a Church background check and been certified through Mininstry Safe to deliver lunches.) Delivery of lunches will take place on Mondays and Thursdays throughout the summer.
You may also want to pick up items when you’re shopping – bags of apples, creamy peanut butter, sliced cheese (not individually wrapped), brown paper lunch bags, CapriSun or boxed drinks, or individually packaged raisins, snack crackers, or pretzels. Those items may be marked for B.I.G. Feed and brought to the kitchen.
