MLM distributes over 700 sack lunches a MONTH between our 3 locations in Midtown, Wyandotte and the Northland. That is over 10,000 a year!

A sack lunch packing party can be done pretty much anywhere, any number can participate, and any amount of sack lunches will be accepted. We can walk you through the process, and/or come to you and help facilitate. This is a great thing to do with any age group, and can involve participation from small groups to a crowd.

How does a sack lunch packing party work?

Volunteers hold a collection for the items needed, assemble the lunch sacks with the items collected (with the option of drawing on the lunch sack or including a note/card of encouragement) and then deliver them to MLM. If you can’t deliver them, we are happy to arrange for pick up!

Who receives a sack lunch?

  • Learning to Earning (job assistance centers at MLM) – those looking for employment
  • Clients and Walk-Ins – those who are in need of services or emergency assistance
