“Lunch for Friends” Fundraiser to Support Waco Charter School and
McLennan County Hunger Coalition
October 16, 2015, is World Food Day, a day which encourages awareness that many of our neighbors do not have ready access to food. In McLennan County, 43,120 residents are food insecure. This amounts to 19% of our community.
Join us this October 16th as the McLennan County Hunger Coalition and Waco McLennan County Public Health District sponsor Lunch for Friends to help address hunger within our community.
Funds raised by Lunch for Friends will support Waco Charter School’s plans to establish a weekend feeding program for their students, the majority of whom come from low-income families.
Sponsors of the event include United Healthcare, Superior Health Plan, Waco-McLennan County Public Health District, Economic Opportunities Advancement Corporation, and KWTX-TV.
Come by between 11am – 1pm and enjoy a BBQ sandwich chips and a drink for each $7 donation!Lunch provided by Papa Bear’s Restaurant and will be available for pick up at Waco Charter School (615 N. 25th Street).
