Afternoon of a Thousand Lunches

Well, not literally. But lots of them!

There might be a charity near you that has a need for prepared sandwiches to hand out, likely to the homeless. It may take some effort and creative thinking to find them, relentless internet or ‘maps’ searching.

If you find a place that can use them, then a Saturday or Sunday afternoon can be a delightful time with many from your ecclesia, where each one is preparing sandwiches while enjoying conversation with each other. Maybe your time together can begin with a shared lunch.

Peanut butter sandwiches have the strong advantage of long shelf life, without a need for refrigeration. Package each one in a sandwich-size zip lock bag.

What you’ll need:

  • Sliced bread
  • Peanut butter
  • Sandwich bags
  • Knives

How many sandwiches can you make, in say a half hour? How many bread slices did you use? How much peanut butter? Might it be possible to provide each person attending with a loaf of bread and jar of peanut butter for their use? Is that too much or too little? Share your ideas and experiences!

While we are pleased to be able to provide grants and initiatives to our Brothers and Sisters, there is a real cost associated with these efforts and so donations would be greatly appreciated. The Garden is comprised entirely of volunteers and 100% of funds received are put towards future initiatives and support programs for our North American Christadelphian community. Donations can be made on our donation page or the WCF website.
