On Lunch Money Day, Thursday, March 26, 2015, the Agapè Centre invites you to “brown bag it” and donate the money otherwise spent on lunch in support of your community.
We know how much can be accomplished when a group of people give a little towards a greater cause – this is our motivation behind Lunch Money Day.
Anyone can participate – individuals, businesses, organizations, schools, friends, families.
Just by having lunch and encouraging your colleagues or friends to participate, you can help the Agapè Centre. Join groups and individuals all across Cornwall as they fight community hunger. And there are plenty of ways to have fun with the event – like organizing a pizza day or a potluck lunch.
Winter is a difficult time and hundreds of hungry families face a tough choice – eat or heat. The Lunch Money Day donations will go towards feeding our most vulnerable families and children in Cornwall. We provide healthy lunch meals daily, as well as nourishing groceries to those who need it most. The Agapè Centre distributes over 900 food items each and every working day, and of the 1000 plus people we help monthly, nearly 400 are children. The goal of all the programs at Agapè is to create an environment where people have more accessible, readily available nutritious foods to meet their nutritional goals on a daily basis.
Your donation today will put food on a family’s table tomorrow.
Here’s how it works:
1. Announce to your staff/friends that your organization/group is participating in Lunch Money Day on March 26th, 2015.
2. Put up Posters and pass out Lunch Money Day Giving Cards & envelopes (click to download)
3. Brown bag your lunch to work on March 26th, 2015
4. Feel great!
It’s that easy and since every dollar donated to the Agapè Centre generates five dollars worth of food into your community, just imagine what your lunch money can do!
