Sack lunches

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Partners for Wichita announced that “Filling the Gap Lunches for Kids” will serve free lunches to children and youth ages 18 and under, during spring break on Monday March 12 and March 22, from noon until 1 p.m. at 12 sites in Wichita, Haysville, and Oaklawn. (see list below)

“Filling the Gap Lunches for Kids,” is a program that collaborates with the Kansas Food Bank,
volunteers and community organizations to feed children/youth.

This year, due to the COVID restraints the group is providing a weeks’ worth of meals on Monday to kids that are present at each site.

Donations and grants from individuals, congregations, and organizations make the program possible. Meals will be offered again during the summer break gap when kids cannot each lunch at the Summer Food Service Program coordinated by USD259.
