Kids Lunch Club is a new community summer program serving up grab and go lunches for Decorah area kids. Starting Monday June 6, Kids Lunch Club is open weekdays through the summer. Kids in need of lunch can swing on by Monday-Friday between 11:45 am -1:00 pm and pick up a sack lunch packed with a freshly prepared foods, fruits, and veggies.
It is estimated that up to 150 kids in the Decorah area go without adequate access to meals during the summer months. During the school year, students have access to lunch at school, but during the break, many kids and families struggle. As a community, we are mobilizing volunteers to pack and serve lunches to make sure that kids in our community have meal opportunities during the the summer.
Donate, sign up to volunteer, and learn more about the program by visiting kidslunchclub.org.
