Holy Family Summer Bites to offer free meals on Tuesdays this summer

This summer, Holy Family Catholic Community will help to feed children, families, and other individuals in need of a meal with the launch of its Summer Bites lunch program.

Every Tuesday, from June 11 to August 20, Holy Family will provide hundreds of meals to be distributed at seven locations throughout the city. The goal of the program is to reach all who are in need of food, particularly children and families who rely on school meals, by offering free bag lunches at every corner of our community. The addition of Summer Bites will expand the resources available to people in the Fond du Lac area and help to ensure that we reach as many children and families as we can with free meals this summer.

Distribution times and locations include:

  • Maplewood Commons (Martin Ave. & Hawthorne Dr.), 11:00 to 11:20 am
  • Sacred Heart Church parking lot, 11:00 to 11:20 am
  • St. Mary Church parking lot (off Rees St.), 11:00 to 11:20 am
  • Buttermilk Park (lot by Amphitheatre) 11:30 to 11:50 am
  • Jefferson Park (Ninth St. & Sherman St.), 11:30 to 11:50 am
  • Little Ceasar’s parking lot (Main & Scott Sts.), 11:30 to 11:50 am
  • St. Katharine Drexel Shelter parking lot, 12:00 pm

To provide these meals, we need your help! Over the next few weeks, we will collect donations of specific items to pack lunches. Donations requested are as follows:

  • Week 1 – May 11-12: 8 oz. Water Bottles, Juice Boxes, Ziploc Bags (Sandwich Size)
  • Week 2 – May 18-19:  Fruit Cups, Apple Sauce Cups, Raisins
  • Week 3 – May 25-26:  Peanut Butter and Jelly, Ziploc Bags (Sandwich Size)
  • Week 4 – June 1-2:  Single-Serve Chips & Crackers, Granola Bars, Fruit Snacks

All donations can be dropped off at the Holy Family Parish Office during office hours.
