We know this has been a very difficult year for many and are happy to offer this program

to any parent/child who chooses to sign up.

How it works:

Lunch items will be delivered each week on Thursdays starting the week of July 6th and running through August 20th. 

A robust bag of lunch items will be delivered to your doorstep Thursdays each week during that time.

What’s included in the lunches*:

Sandwich items, Fruits, Vegetables, Snacks

*An appropriate amount of food depending on the age of each child will be provided.  

How to sign up:

If you are interested in participating in this free lunch program, please select ONE of the following options below:

- Best Option: please fill out this quick form online - COS summer lunches

- If you do not have access to a computer – please call the head of our program, Marianne Wilson, directly:  508-330-0733 and she will sign you up.

How they get delivered:

This year all lunches will be delivered directly to your home.  If you are not comfortable with us delivering the lunches to your home, you can pick up your lunches at our COS food pantry headquarters at Vinegar Hill Music Theater (53 Old Post Rd, Arundel) on Thursday afternoons.  If this is the case, please make arrangements with Marianne prior to the start of the program.
