HELPING…Carolyn Ford and Jan Howenstine serving Sack Lunches last year in the Cheyenne City Park. The Summer Sack Lunch Program will begin serving lunches on Friday, May 20, 2016. The program is sponosred by the United Methodist Women.

In the summer of 2013, the United Methodist Women began a pilot program to provide sack lunches to children during the summer. This idea came about after seeing a similar program while on a mission trip to Iowa following devastating flooding around Cedar Rapids. We became aware that in Cheyenne several students during the school year received weekend snacks through the Regional Food Bank’s Backpack program. We wondered what happened to those children during the summer when not only were they not receiving weekend snacks, but also not receiving two meals a day at school during the week.
