Reduce Hunger in Our Community Today!

Last summer, Operation Sandwich provided over 55,000 meals to our local families. With food prices on the rise, the need will be even greater this summer to provide a healthy lunch and snack to kids in our community.


This summer, Bridges of Hope is raising funds for lunches and snack packs to feed over 500 families during the summer and school breaks. Every $2 donated provides one child with one lunch. 

We are proud to partner with Zaiser's and Nice Enough to ensure local kids do not struggle with hunger this summer. Thanks to the generosity of Biff and Katie Ulm, your gift to Operation Sandwich this summer will be matched up to $50,000! We are proud to shop locally for our lunch supplies and are endlessly grateful for our community’s support of Operation Sandwich!

Thank You!

This past May, our Board members divided into two teams, Peanut Butter and Jelly, set on a mission to see who could be the first to reach their team goal of $5,000 by June 5th. Not only did they surpass this goal well before the deadline, but they also set a new target: to see which team could reach $10,000 first.

As of June 5th, Team Peanut Butter emerged victorious, raising over $9,000.

While the competition added a fun twist, the true purpose was to raise funds for local kids and families. This friendly rivalry not only generated nearly $15,000 but also provided more than 7,000 meals to those in our community. Now, that is something to celebrate!

Thank you to all our generous donors for your incredible support. We could not have done this without you!
