We received the following information from Flat River Outreach Ministries regarding their July volunteers of the month.
For July, we want to recognize our newly formed Kid’s Lunch Buddies Leadership Team. They have helped take over the planning, ordering and logistics of the program. This group puts in a lot of time behind the scenes to make sure the food is ordered, here on time and ready when the kids and volunteers show up on Tuesdays. To say the program could not run without them is an understatement!
Cheryl Clark has been volunteering with the program the longest and began in 2013. She says she enjoys volunteering with the programs because it’s “fun to see these kiddos making good choices of the food that is offered.” Nancy Zandbergen started volunteering with the program this year because she “doesn’t want anyone to go hungry” and says her volunteer experience have been “more rewarding than I ever thought.” Bettina Jones had spent some time interning with the food programs during her internship for the Dietetics program and returned to Lunch Buddies this summer as a volunteer to help the program comply with the healthy food choice options provided in the other food programs.
Thank you ladies for all you have done to help make this program a success and for serving our community and our children so well. We are so thankful for you!
As a reminder, Kids Lunch Buddies takes place every Tuesday from now until August 13 from 1:00-6:00 p.m. at FROM. To find out more information, visit www.fromlowell.org
