LUNCH BAG

Front Door Communities Lunch Bag Program:  We welcome help in supplying lunch bags to hungry people! Each lunch costs about $3.00 and groups or friends can team up to contribute money, purchase items and/or make/pack up completed lunches.

  • Tuna, chicken, or ham salad with cracker packages (come individually in tuna section of store; usually are $1 but can be $1.29 or more)
    • OR- small cans of Vienna sausages (Smart and Final, Costco and other places) $.50 per can or less in bulk

  • BIG boxes of cookies or crackers we can make into smaller snack bag sizes

  • Applesauce or fruit cups in individual containers (available everywhere in packs of 6 or 8 small cases of 8 packs)

  • Cereal/power/snack bars (come individually or in boxes of 8-12) (Please– nothing crunchy or sticky/gooey as many of our folks have dental issues)

  • Snack packages of cookies or crackers

  • Boxes of raisins (come in groups of 6 or 8)

  • Peanut butter or cheese and cracker packages (come in packages of 8-12)

  • Cases of bottled water or real juice boxes

  • Plastic spoons and napkins

  • Extra-large lunch bags (size 8) (Smart and Final) (about $10.00 for 500)

  • Boxes of plastic zip lock type sandwich bags

Good stores to get these items cheaply include:

     Smart & Final             Costco             Grocery Outlet            Dollar Tree/Dollar Store

Lifted Spirits

We serve hot lunches three times a week to over 30 hungry women so we welcome groups and friends to prepare these homemade meals and stay to serve them and talk to the women.  We welcome clothing donations for our “Oh-La-La Boutique” to help our women feel beautiful: unhoused women are allowed several items each day they come. 

FOR BOTH PROGRAMS

We rely on donations for items such as: toiletries (saved from trips or purchased), razors, deodorant, combs, dog and cat food, laundry soap, feminine products, socks, backpacks, rain gear, sleeping bags, blankets, towels and wash clothes and more.  We welcome gift cards ($15) for restaurants and stores (we gave Target cards last holiday season when we had received enough for all of our Lifted Spirits women), clipper cards or bus tokens, paper supplies for lunches (plates, napkins, to-go boxes), small tents, and other supplies you think you might need or want if you were in need.
