Project Lunchbox is a weekend food program for kids in PreK - 8th grades who's family qualifies for the free or reduced lunch program in the New Ulm School District. Food will be packed and delivered to schools for kids who qualify for free or reduced lunches. The food packages will be placed in a child's backpack on Friday to be taken home. These food packages will include up to two meals and two snacks to get each child through the weekend. Why do we need this program? Hunger can have a huge impact on young children, causing anxiety, poor behavior and impairment to a child's ability to learn.
*To sign up for Project Lunchbox, please complete the registration form located at your child's school.
United Way of the Brown County Area is partnering with Christensen Farms again this year to ensure no child goes hungry over the weekend. For more information about Project Lunchbox or how you can help, please contact our office at 507-354-6512.
