2019 CAYA Summer Lunch Program

This year’s Summer Lunch Program will operate Monday thru Friday, beginning Tuesday, May 18, 2019 and ending on Friday, July 26, 2019. The Summer Lunch program is designed to provide sack lunches to children in need in the Dallas and Hiram area throughout the summer break from school.

There are four very specific ways that you can help us feed the children in Paulding County this summer.
1.) Donate Food Items – (see the list below)  Consider calling or emailing to learn what the greatest needs are at the time of your donation. Call CAYA at 770-445-9303 or email us at info@CAYAMinistries.com for more info. All donations may be dropped off at CAYA between 8 am and 1:30 pm Monday thru Friday. We are located in one of the duplex apartments of the Dallas Housing Authority community at 445 Paulding Lane, Dallas, GA 30132.

·       Lunch meat (turkey & ham)

·       Cheese slices (individually wrapped slices are preferred)

·       Bread – Wheat or white

·       Sweet Snacks (cookies, brownies, granola bars, etc.)

·       Fruit Items (applesauce, fruit cups, fresh fruit, fruit snacks)

·       Juice Box – Capri Sun, Kool-Aid Jammers, Juicy Juice, Hi-C, Minute Maid Coolers, Etc.

·       Ziploc Sandwich Bags

·       Brown lunch bags

2.) Donate financially to help purchase any food items not provided – We are making between 450 and 550 lunches every day throughout the summer. At that rate, we use a large quantity of our lunch supplies each day. For many who want to help, it is difficult to bring supplies to CAYA during our normal hours of operation. Please consider helping us cover the cost of lunch items that we may need to purchase. (Click on “Donate Here” button below.)

3.) Help us pack and/or deliver the lunches – We need lots of help throughout the summer.  Please call us or respond by email if you would like to help us pack lunches or deliver them to the children in our community. We would love your hands, feet and hearts to serve with us.

4.) Pray – Pray that God supplies all of what we need (food, finances and helpers) to accomplish this outreach. Pray for the recipients of the sack lunches to experience God's love and encouragement through this endeavor.
