Making Lunch Count

Chicken Salad Croissant

I don’t know about you, but after three hours of being on my feet, moving boxes, preparing meals and sorting food donations, I’m uplifted… and I’m hungry! Volunteering can make a person work up an appetite.

A new, convenient program takes the guesswork out of what’s for lunch. Lunch for Good is a simple solution that volunteers have been asking for since the Hunger Relief Center opened on Mercy Drive over five years ago. These fresh, healthy boxed lunches are available for individuals or groups to enjoy before, after or between volunteer shifts.

There are a variety of lunches to choose from, each made with quality ingredients, including turkey and cheese, ham and cheese and chicken salad. Lunches can be customized to accommodate gluten-free diets. A Mediterranean salad is also available. Each lunch includes a bag of potato chips and a choice of a fresh-baked cookie or crisp apple.

Lunches are available Monday through Friday for pick up at the food bank in Orlando. Delivery is not available for individual lunches.
