Summer Lunch Program

Summer Lunch Program  – check back & connect on Facebook + Instagram,  2020 updates coming soon!

Established in 2013, the Snack-N-Wagon, a mobile food pantry, provides free healthy weekday lunches (whole grain breads, meat, cheese, fresh fruit, veggies and milk) to Golden children up to 18 years old during the summer. The program operates for 10 weeks in high-need neighborhoods.

A hundred years from now it will not matter what your bank account was, the sort of house you lived in, or the kind of clothes you wore, but the world may be much different because you were important in the life of a child. -Author Unknown

Our Snack-N-Wagon typically serves lunch at the following locations during the summer.

  • Mountainside Estates
  • Golden Terrace
  • Golden Terrace West
  • Ridgemoor Apartments
