Our Charity - The Mustard Seed School Lunch Program
About The Charity
The Mustard Seed School Lunch Program is designed to assist families and schools with food security by providing nutritious lunches.
They are continuing to supply lunches to students during our current health & economic crisis. Currently, they are making 750 - 850 student lunches every week, which are either picked up by families or delivered through community liaison workers. They were also able to expand their program to rural areas including Sylvan Lake, Delburn, Elnora, Bowden and Innisfail. The needs for kids experiencing poverty are immense, and are not limited to Red Deer.
In addition, the Mustard Seed has partnered with the Red Deer Food Bank and both school boards, with the support of local churches, to deliver Food Bank hampers directly to families in need. This partnership is a beautiful example of the ways that our community can work together to foster hope in these difficult times.
Each lunch costs approximately $2, so make yourself a goal to feed a student in Red Deer for a month ($40), six months ($240) or a year ($360)! Every little bit helps and the sky is the limit. Gather your family and friends, get a team going, and let's work together to make a huge impact on the lives of school children in Red Deer!
100% of all donations for The Mustard Seed School Lunch Program received through the Red Deer PCN Women's Fun Run will go to benefit children in our community.
Thank you for your support!
