Our CFMA Siouxland Chapter is scheduled to pack meals with Lunch Is Served, Inc. on TUESDAY, January 19, 2016 at 5:30 PM.  Plan now to attend the event. We will be asked to arrive 15 minutes early. This is a great opportunity to give back to our community! We need at least 15 volunteers from the chapter for this volunteer activity, and 2-4 individuals from that group who are also willing to help delivering the meals after the packing.

Please RSVP for this event by using the following link:

Additional information pertaining to this opportunity is as follows:

  • The packing will be in the Fellowship Hall at Emmanuel Baptist Church.  Here’s a map link to help you find us…
  • Volunteers will be making sandwiches and packing brown bag lunches for the working poor in our community.
  • It will take 1 to 2 hours to complete the packing and deliver the meals.
  • Most of the volunteers will be standing during the packing, so we recommend wearing comfortable shoes.
  • Volunteers with long hair will need to tie it back into a ponytail.
  • Children are welcome with adult supervision. There are jobs for children over the age of 3.
  • We ask that volunteers provide donations to cover all or part of the cost of the lunches packed at their scheduled volunteer session.  If your group does not have available funds, do not let this keep you from volunteering.
    • The average cost of each packing is $325.
    • In-kind donations are always welcome!  (Plastic spoons, paper napkins, individual-sized chips, granola/cereal bars and individual-sized fruit cups are our most needed items.)
  • We also ask that you create a brief inspirational message that will be placed in each brown bag lunch that you prepare.  This can be as simple as “We sincerely wish you a good day!” or an encouraging quote or Scripture verse.  You will need 300 copies of these little messages.  We have messages that you are welcome to use if you do not wish to make your own.
  • Finally, we will take a group photo at the end of the packing which will be posted on our Facebook page the Friday immediately following your packing date. 
    • Please let me know if anyone in your group cannot be photographed.
    • Please feel free to tag yourself and your organization!

Please note that we will no longer be emailing or mailing volunteer pictures.
