Life 96.5 and YOU can team up with Lunch Is Served during Hunger Action Month to gather items AND to make and pack sack lunches during September!

Thanks to the sponsorship of Barnett-Lewis Funeral Home we’re able to come together during September to provide lunches for the hard-working poor in the Sioux Empire. Lunch Is Served puts together about 550 lunches each week for workers at People Ready, Short Staffed, Select Painting, VOA Axis 180, St. Francis House, The Banquet and other places where men and women are working and making a better life for themselves and their families.

Wednesday, September 21 Life 96.5 and listeners came together to pack lunches at Lunch Is Served!

If you would like to volunteer with Lunch Is Served, please contact Kathy by email at Volunteers are always needed!  You can put together your own group of 6 or more and help on any Monday evening or Wednesday noon hour. See the calendar and learn more about volunteering on their website.

We’re also inviting you to donate some individual items that are needed to put in the lunches. Things like

  • single-serve fruit cups
  • breakfast bars
  • individual bags of chips/pretzels/salty snacks
  • packaged napkins
  • packaged plastic spoons
  • hand written lunchbox notes of encouragement

If you would like to donate items, just bring them to the Life 96.5 studio building (4721 W 71st Street, Sioux Falls) or to the Jeremy Camp concert at Washington Pavilion on September 30th.

Sioux Falls Lutheran School utilized their Homecoming celebration for Hunger Action Month! They gathered over 600 items for lunches!

    If you are making lunches on the 21st, wouldn’t you need the items before the 30th?

      Hi Lisa!
      Thanks for your question! Lunch Is Served is a year-round program, so all the donations received will be used as needed. During the month of September, packing days are already in the works and the supplies needed are on hand. The items the Life 96.5 community collects will go toward any of the organization’s packing sessions, current or future.
