Brown Bag Lunch
We are now in a new world and the Medicine Hat and District Food Bank recognizes that having children home can cause an extra strain on your finances. We also recognize that many children who previously accessed the Brown Bag Lunch Program at school did not necessarily have their families accessing the Food Bank. With this in mind and in collaboration with Medicine Hat School Public School Division, The Catholic Board of Education, Prairie Rose School Division and The Province of Alberta we are launching a Brown Bag Lunch Program that you can take home once a week!
You can access the program by filling out the form below. The weekly Brown Bag Lunch packages will be available to all children in your family over the age of six from any of the school districts and will include healthy and easy options for your child’s lunches.
Each Brown Bag Lunch package will also include some printed recipes and a link that will take you to a you tube video with cooking instructions and ideas for what to do with your lunch package when you receive it.
If you already access the Food Bank regularly the Brown Bag Lunch packages will automatically be included in your Food Bank hamper. We just ask that when arranging your pickup or delivery you let us know how many children will qualify in your household.
If you do not require access to the Food Bank but would like to still receive the Brown Bag Lunch package for you child please fill out the form below.
