Full Summer of Meals and Programs

Liz Welch, Summer Lunch Bunch Coordinator with The Salvation Army, shares the program’s impact in 2016 and its goals for 2017.

Summer Lunch Bunch Volunteer Training

The Summer Lunch Bunch, the Livingston County Hunger Council’s community meals program, is gearing up for an exciting summer of 2017. Thousands of hours of volunteer time are required to make this program a success, so you can offer a few hours, a few days, or get involved on a more regular basis, we need you!

The program has physical locations in Brighton, Fenton, Fowlerville, Gregory, Howell and Whitmore Lake, as well as the opportunity to volunteer in the seasonal food warehouse or by serving as a clerical support person at our 503 Lake Street Location.
