Important Program Information About Summer Lunch 2020

 

Conestoga Valley Christian Community Services will provide free grab-and-go summer lunches at three locations in the Conestoga Valley School District beginning June 9 running through Aug.11 for children 18 and younger.

In past years, CVCCS served summer lunches three days a week. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, our normal Summer Lunch program meals will be prepackaged and distributed once a week on Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and will be grab-and-go.

Each child will receive a bundle of three meals for the week that are ready to eat or reheat. The sites will not be open to eat the meals there.

Please call ahead at 717-208-3733 each week so we know many meals to prepare.

Meals will be distributed at three locations:

Flory Park

Lancaster, Pa. 17602

Country Club Apartments
323 Aaron Lane
Lancaster, Pa. 17601

Ebeneezer Evangelical Congregational Church Brownstown
