Summer Lunch Program

The Blackfoot School District serves free lunches to children all summer, until a couple weeks before school starts back up in the fall. For those last couple weeks, Jason Lee Memorial United Methodist Church serves free sack lunches to all children ages 1-18. The need to continue feeding children during this time period was realized by church members in 2008. A sack lunch program was begun and carried out in various ways every summer. Then, in 2017, the church began receiving financial help from the Community Dinner Table to carry out the program. This past summer over 500 lunches were served during the two-week period. The program is organized by church volunteers, who also prepare and serve the lunches at the church, from 11:30-12:45.
