Come join in serving PRCC’s newest Outreach Partner, Loving Lunches. Once a month, PRCC assists Loving Lunches in their efforts in delivering over 300 meals weekly to those experiencing food and home insecurities in the Chicagoland area. Volunteers are needed monthly to assist with preparing and packaging meals, as well as making kindness cards that will be placed into each lunch bag. Volunteers of all ages are welcome- kids under 13 must be accompanied by adult. In addition to physical volunteers, supporting the cost of supplying these meals is greatly appreciated!
Loving Lunches is an in-house charity that is dedicated to making lunches for Chicagoland’s homeless population in need of a meal. The Loving Lunches initiative was found by AMA Academy of Performing Arts founder, Ann Marie Frank and her sister, Chris Depaepe, as a way to give back to her community during the uncertain times of the Covid-19 pandemic. Lunches are delivered every Monday directly to the homeless and we make 300+ lunches, delivered twice a week! They have made over 15,000 lunches since April of 2020 with the help of countless volunteers. In every lunch, they add a handmade Kindness card to include with sayings such as “You Matter” or “We Love You” to show we care. Many of our Kindness cards are made by students and members of our community! CLICK HERE to read more!
