Support Kids in Your Community This Summer

Did you know that more than 3,300 kids in the Brainerd Lakes Area rely on their school’s free and reduced-price meal programs for lunch? For these kids, when the school year ends, so does the school lunch program— challenging families financially during the summer months.

Bridges of Hope, through Operation Sandwich, provides much needed meals weekly to students facing summer hunger. Grocery bags including 5 days’ worth of bread, peanut butter, jelly, granola bars, fruit snacks, an additional snack, and fresh fruit and/or vegetables are available for pick-up once per week. Because of rising food prices, it will cost 19% more this year to feed the same number of kids as last year. Operation Sandwich is counting on your support to raise $25,000 to meet the needs of kids and their families in 2022.
