Project SHARE says it will distribute a week’s worth of breakfasts and lunches to 500 youths in the Carlisle and Mount Holly Springs areas every Friday beginning June 12.
Bob Weed, CEO of Project SHARE, said the distributions are for children up to age 18.
“We realized that we could feed even more of our kids by collaborating with local vendors such as Kimberly’s Café, Mickey’s Pizza, Chick-Fil-A and Chobani Yogurts. These businesses add variety and quality to our selection of fresh and shelf stable items,” he said.
Project SHARE is preparing packages with a week’s worth of breakfasts and lunches for distribution to families in the greater Carlisle area.
Distributions will take place at Project SHARE on North Orange Street in Carlisle and in the parking lot of Amelia Givin Library in Mount Holly Springs. Distribution times will run from 9 to 11 a.m. on Fridays through Aug. 7.
The Carlisle Project SHARE site will be coordinated by, Emma Witwer, Project SHARE’s nutrition educator and kitchen coordinator. Witwer has planned a series of weekly menus that will be included with all of the packages.
Janet Kacsur, will be the supervisor at the Mount Holly site, and will coordinate distribution there.
Walk up families are welcome, however they should be prepared for the quantity of food items being distributed.
There is no required registration and food will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until supplies run out. “We hope to reach most if not all of those families who could use a hand up during these challenging times,” Weed said.
