Landmark Continues Commitment to Local Summer Lunch Programs
As a part of Landmark’s commitment to be engaged in the communities where we live and work, we’re excited to keep working with three summer lunch programs that help feed kids.
With over 800 eligible students in the DeForest School District, there is a strong need to provide nutritious meals for children. The Norski Nibbles summer lunch program is a collaborative effort among local businesses, service groups, and churches, and Landmark is providing a $3,000 donation for the purchase of fresh produce and other products from the DeForest Area Farmers Market. We are also contributing beef sticks. The food is distributed at several sheltered parks from 11:45 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., on June 11 through August 29.
The Lunch in the Park summer food program, from Edgerton Community Outreach, understands that many of the children who receive free and reduced lunch at school suffer from a lack of food options at home in the summer. Landmark is sponsoring for a fourth year. Program staff and volunteers are packaging and delivering meals to 158 kids in Edgerton on Mondays and Wednesdays, and each child receives two lunches, totaling four lunches per week.
United Methodist Church in Milton and One Apple Lunch Bunch are providing free, nutritious meals each weekday for all students 18 and under who face food insecurity at home. This is our third year sponsoring the program. One Apple Lunch Bunch runs 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays at Harmony Elementary School, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays at United Methodist Church, from June 8 through August 30. Landmark is proud to continue supporting the humanitarian efforts of these outstanding summer lunch programs throughout Wisconsin.
