Who Are We?
Green Lantern Lunches is a year round, 100% volunteer and donation based program that delivers lunches to food-insecure children on weekends during the school year and all weekdays during the summer months – when the children need it the most! The summer program began in 2015 and the weekend backpack program began in 2016. The program is growing extremely fast as we try to keep up with the demand.
Number of Lunches Delivered So Far:
2017: As of August: 35,185 and counting!!
We Are Currently Delivering To:
» Ocean Shores
» Pacific Beach
» Quinault Village
» Copalis Beach
» Ocean City
» Copalis Crossing
We believe in our future generations. One of the the first steps to set up a child for success is proper, consistent nutrition. We are on a mission to make sure all children are getting adequate nutrition daily.
Because we care.
The Hunger Problem
Eighty percent of the kids in the North Beach School district qualify for free and reduced lunches during the school year. When school gets out on Fridays, and for the summer, many kids are unsure where their next meal will come from. The USDA program does not work in our area because kids are not able to meet at a designated lunch location since they live so far away.
After a summer went by with no feeding program, we took matters into our own hands and created a program where we knew the children would get fed. Each delivery day, a group of volunteers gather to pack and load hundreds of lunches to be sent out for delivery to the homes of the children. We are currently sending out over 500 lunches a day
Join Us In Feeding Our Future Generations By:
Donating today via our GoFundMe page.
One lunch costs as little as $2 to pack and deliver. We truly appreciate any donation of money or non-perishable food. All donations go to the purchase and delivery of our lunches.
