Dear Citizens of Monroe City,
Monroe City Summer Lunch for Kids in cooperation with the Monroe City Senior Nutrition Center and the Monroe City Food Bank is about to begin their seventh year of the Kids Summer Lunch Program. This program delivers a hot lunch to students on the Monroe City School backpack program. The program provides a backpack of food for students identified by faculty as not having sufficient food in their homes for the weekend during the school year. During the summer these students will not have an opportunity for school lunch and there is a concern about their nutritional needs. We are once again calling for the generous support from Monroe City to support this summer lunch program.
Our list is much longer this year. We plan to deliver a hot meal to 33 elementary students and siblings in the summer months from May 24 to August 12. At a cost of $3.50 per meal, the total is $199.50 per student for a total of $6,583.50. If you are able to donate to this important cause you may send a donation to the Monroe City Food Bank specifying it for the Summer Lunch for Kids program or contact:
26418 Monroe Road 583
Monroe City, MO 63456
Monroe City is such a generous community. With your continued support we will be able to offer a much needed service to these children.
Thank you for your help and continuing to make Monroe City a great place to be a child.
