OPPC Summer Food for Kids

We're Feeding Hungry Kids this Summer and you can help!!

 There are more than 1,000 children in Carmel Clay Schools that depend on free breakfast and lunch five days a week at school. Many also receive weekend food assistance during the school year. For many years, Orchard Park Presbyterian Church has provided food for these children for Winter and Spring Break.

But we've often wondered, 'What about summer?'

Last winter, God connected us to several other people and organizations who were asking that same question. We're excited to announce that this year the Carmel community is coming together to address the problem of summer hunger through the first ever Carmel Summer Lunch Program. The program will provide a sack of nutritious ingredients to make each child five healthy breakfasts and lunches each of the eleven weeks of summer break.

Orchard Park Presbyterian Church has committed to be one of the distribution sites for the Carmel Summer Lunch Program. This program is supported by Orchard Park, Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank, Carmel Youth Assistance Program, The Rotary, Kiwanis, St. Christopher Episcopal Church, Merciful Help Center, Carmel United Methodist Church and Pilgrim Lutheran Church. 

Join us this summer and feed hungry kids in our backyard
