Providing bagged lunches to organizations around the Miami Valley to help those struggling with food insecurity. Changing the World – One Lunch at a Time
Eleven years ago John and Niki Lee wanted to do something to teach their kids, Jackson & Kate the importance of volunteering and helping the less fortunate. They made 50 bagged lunches in their kitchen for the St. Vincent DePaul Women & Children Shelter in downtown Dayton. After that they formally launched Just a Little Lunch as a non-profit.
In 2016 over 3,300 lunches were made and delivered and by 2018, over 5000 lunches were made by 350+ volunteers. Over half of those volunteers were under 18. The lunches were delivered to 24 shelters and organization across 3 differ counties, including St.Vincent de Paul, House of Bread and Daybreak to name a few.
A sandwich, some goodies and a whole lot of love. Each year thousands
of lunches are assembled by hundreds of loving folks!
The lunches are assembled and delivered the day before Thanksgiving (November 27, 2019) and are used to feed the hungry not on Thanksgiving but the 3 days after Thanksgiving when the need is forgotten and most needed.
