The Sunday Lunch Bunch Group started about 1913 when it was realized that there are missions who serve food during the week but not on weekends. The Sunday Lunch Bunch was formed to fill this need.
Bread for the World
We at Good Shepherd have been preparing sandwiches since February 1988. Our turn comes up every six to eight weeks, depending on the schedule. We meet at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday of our assigned weekend for about one and one half hours in the church basement. Usually, 10 to 12 volunteers show up for the time needed. Please click here for the 2016 Schedule. This is a wonderful way to meet people in our Parish.
We then take the sandwiches to the Volunteers of America store at 28th and Lawrence Street for distribution on Sunday.
Many people also prepare lunch bags and bring them to the Church before 11:00 a.m. on the Sunday of distribution. Lunches should include two sandwiches, cookies, apple or fruit, or candy bar. Pack what you would like to eat!
We hope you will find time to help us. This is a great way to show children how by serving others, we help ourselves. Jesus said we are to help the least of our brothers and sisters. So, we ask you to follow in His footsteps with us.
