Help Us Feed Children in Need this Summer!

Love INC has partnered with District 112 / Eastern Carver County schools to provide a lunch program for children in need during the summer months. Children (age 1-18) will receive lunch followed by participation in educational programming.

The lunch program will be held Monday through Friday and begins on June 12th. The program will end on September 1st. (There will be no meals served on July 3rd, and July 4th.)

Two to four (2-4) volunteers, at least 2 of whom are adults, are needed from 12:15 pm to 2:00 pm each day. Volunteers will assist in opening lunch packages, etc., and general supervision of the children during lunch and during the educational programming, which may include a game, reading, or other educational activities, as determined by the school district.

Families, adults, and children age 10+ are welcome to volunteer! We do ask that children age 10-15 be supervised at all times and a parent must volunteer along side the child. Children over age 15 may be present without a parent but must have transportation available promptly at 2:00 pm.

Location: Riverview Terrace Community Center Building, 300 Ehlers Avenue, Chaska, MN

When: June 12, 2017 – September 1, 2017

Time: 12:15 PM – 2:00 PM
