Bag Lunch


Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor. -Proverbs 22:9

8th Grade Class Volunteers


Mrs. Keith's 8th grade class from St. Stephen's St. Agnes came to volunteer at the Bag Lunch Program by making soup and sandwiches and distributing them at Meade Memorial. Afterwards, they learned about hunger in our city and around the world from a talk given by Mary Beth Baylor. The students who had done volunteer work in the past, but did not have interactions with the people they were helping, really enjoyed the hands on experience of actually handing out the food. One student commented, "It really completes the circle for me by making the sandwiches and serving them to those who are hungry."

Ministry needs:

If you have a loving heart and desire to make a difference, volunteer to help feed hungry people in the City of Alexandria through the Bag Lunch Program. Volunteer to be a meal-maker or a driver. Meal-makers prepare sandwiches and make the lunches from 9:00-11:00 a.m. Drivers must have a car and be able to lift and carry boxes of bag lunches. Drivers pick up the lunches at Christ Church and take them to Meade Memorial Church to setup the food line. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to noon. The boxes are then packed up and supplies returned to Christ Church.

Time Required:

The bag lunch program runs in a seven week rotation. Christ Church volunteers prepare bag lunches during one of those seven weeks. The time commitment is very flexible and volunteers may choose to work one day or all week.
