The 2023 Program has Ended
Julie Boucher describes the King George Summer Lunch Bunch program and how it began.
This year's program was dedicated to the memory of Janice Shelton
We wrapped up our 2023 program on Thursday, July 27. Over 14 dates during June and July we delivered more than 1,500 lunches, an average of about 108 lunches per delivery day. Thursdays were slightly busier than Tuesdays (112 per day vs. 104). We had a high of 132 on three different days: June 27, July 13, and July 27.
There were 67 people who volunteered in some capacity. That is a testament to your dedication to
serving the King George community!
Thank you for your support this summer. We couldn’t have done it without you and we look forward to seeing you in 2024!
