Salvation Army Brown Bag Lunch Program Set to Begin Next Week

The Fond du Lac Salvation Army is set to begin its 26th year of providing lunches to children in need over the summer through the Brown Bag Lunch Program. The program began in 1993, and distributed 2,600 free cold lunches in its first year, that number has grown to over 17,500 lunches packed and distributed as of 2017. The sack lunch provides a sandwich, chips/snack, vegetable/fruit, a dessert and a beverage. Brown Bag distributions take place at three different locations, along with the Salvation Army headquarters on Macy Street.

The official start to the program is next Tuesday, June 11th, and while a core group of volunteers works to keep the lunches coming, Major Jon Welch says more volunteers are always welcome. “It goes Tuesdays and Thursdays, all the way to August the 22nd,” Welch said. “Just anybody that wants to help out on Tuesdays and Thursdays, either call us, come by and sign up, or sign up online.” The number interested volunteers can call is 923-8220 or they can send an email to FDLSAinfo@usc.salvationarmy.org.
