Join the Boerne Community Coalition (BCC) as we prepare nutritious lunches select weekdays this Christmas Break for children who are at risk of being hungry. During regular school days, these children receive meals through the Federal Meal Program. During non-school periods, like Christmas Break, when these meals are not provided, nutritious meals may not be an option. Each day we will prepare lunches & deliver them to various locations in Boerne.
Team Leader - You must be a Certified Food Handler to sign up for the Team Leader slot. Team Leaders need to arrive by 9:15 am & stay after to clean up. Note that as a Team Leader your primary role will be to supervise the lunch prep process.
Lunch Prep & Delivery - These volunteers will prepare the sandwiches & snacks for the sack lunches. We ask that all Lunch Prep & Delivery volunteers have a vehicle & are able to deliver lunches in the Boerne area. You're welcome to sign up for this slot & bring your children along to help. Youth volunteers can always earn service hours.
Please sign up today!
