FLY - Feeding Lunches to Youth

Feeding Lunches to Youth serves sack lunches, Monday through Friday during the summer months, to children who may not eat when school is not in session. The lunches are prepared and delivered each day out of the Marion Methodist Church by volunteers from nine different area churches. Volunteers drive to the sites and hand out the lunches to the children. FLY aims to spread the message of Jesus Christ and the joy of providing and giving to children. 

St. Mark's "day" to pack and deliver lunches is Thursday. If you would like to volunteer, please click here to sign up. If you have any questions or need assistance in registering, please contact Denise Harriman at deniseharriman@gmail.com or 319-321-3968.
