The Redstone Team continued to “make it better” by volunteering for the Lunch Is Served, Inc. program in early October 2016.
Lunch Is Served, Inc. provides sack lunches to the working poor. The sack lunches are delivered to the Banquet, the St. Francis House and Labor Ready for those organizations to distribute to the working poor. Lunch Is Served, Inc. was started by a group of concerned Sioux Falls citizens and started serving brown bag lunches in September 2006. The sack lunches are packed twice a week and provide a nutritious lunch to the working poor. The Redstone volunteer group included Redstone Team members and family members as young as 7.
How it felt to volunteer for the Lunch Is Served program can best be summed up by one of our youngest volunteers: “It was fun packing bags so people could have lunch – can we do that again? We are fortunate that we have enough money to buy supper for us tonight.” The Redstone Team is scheduled to volunteer at Lunch Is Served again in the near future.
