PLA SUMMER LUNCH PROGRAM
MISSION AND HISTORY THE LUNCH PROGRAM
In 2013, Tiffany Smith founded Light Lunch Ministry and brought this need to PLA's attention. With the help of our partner/local food pantry Bethlehem Place, we identified approximately 125 children — out of the hundreds of children who are on the PISD free or reduced-lunch program — who are in desperate need of lunch during the summer months. In the summer of 2018, this program served more than 6,000 free meals to 375 kids 18 years of age and under.
Today the Prosper Ladies Summer Lunch Program ensures that these kids continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Lunches are assembled and distributed on Tuesday evenings at a named location prior to the end of the school year.
The program has received overwhelming support from local vendors and residents. In the summer of 2019, Prosper Ladies and Lovepacs Prosper will be in a partnership to support the program.
