North County kids need help for Summer lunches

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
Our local kids need help with food insecurity this summer. Our North County connection with other Grub Clubs in the area has become fragile with many competing for the same resources.
The Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church volunteers make 800-1000 lunches per week for 8 weeks every summer. These cost about $2 per lunch.. USDA will only reimburse if we hand them out at a communal meal site. This is a problem for rural areas. Our kids are spread out so that volunteer drivers deliver to 15 different locations 3 times a week,
It will cost about $8000 more than we currently have to continue the program.
If you would like to donate money to this very worthy cause, please write a check to NBUMC and designate “Grub Club” on the memo line.
Donations may be dropped off at the church or mailed to POB 156, Nehalem, OR 97131.
