Hunger: Sack Lunch Ministry

The Sack Lunch Ministry provides meals for  hungry and/or homeless people in the Kansas City area by delivering nonperishable, nutritious meals to urban ministries. 

To provide a sack lunch, follow the instructions below:

  • Purchase the items on the grocery list and place them in a brown paper bag.
  • Close the bag with staples so that the contents do not fall out.
  • Put filled sack lunches into larger sacks (5-6 lunches per sack) or in a box and place them on the shelves in the collection corner in the church lobby.
  • You may attach a note of encouragement or your favorite Bible verse; children are invited to decorate the sacks.
