Kingdom Outreach organises free lunch box scheme

Kingdom Outreach are organising a free lunch box scheme for families struggling to make ends meet this summer. Families need to register with their local children’s centre (by Friday 14th July) and the lunches will be available for collection 11AM-1PM Mon – Friday throughout the summer holidays (apart from August bank holiday).  There will also be lots of family fun activities going on during the collection sessions and it’s all free!  

Holiday hunger is a growing problem in Blackburn with Darwen with over 3700 children in the area claiming free school meals and 870 children have already registered for the scheme.   This is the first year that this project has run so your support is crucial!

How can you help?

Butty buddies @ Wesley Hall Methodist Church, Feilden St, Blackburn BB2 1LQ
Volunteers are needed between 7:45AM – 9AM every morning to make up the sandwiches and pack the bags.  We need approx. 30-40 volunteers a day so we’re particularly keen to hear from organisations and businesses who would like to help as part of the corporate social responsibility.  You can volunteer for a day or a week or the whole summer –whatever works for you!

Volunteers can also access a rolling program of free food hygiene training at the Boulevard Centre.

Each lunch costs approx. £1 each and will include a sandwich fruit, a drink and a cereal bar or muffin.  The more money we raise the more children we can help! Please donate here:
