We are learning about helping agencies in our community.
One of our favourite agencies is Fill their Lunchbox.
We discovered this is a local organisation that provides lunches to children in Christchurch Schools. We felt very sad that there are children in Christchurch who go to school with no lunch (or not enough lunch).
We feel excited that Fill their Lunch boxes are doing such a great thing for our community. Ben founded this movement because he was a chef at Joe's Garage and he heard that children in Christchurch were going to school hungry. He decided that because he can cook and he wanted to make a difference to other people he should start Fill their Lunch Box.
If you are passionate about this we would love you to support this fantastic cause. We love that it is so easy to help other people. Ben's idea was to make a way to help other people help other people.
Fill their Lunchbox works by a person buying a lunch for $15 - this buys you a sandwich/roll/panini/wrap type of thing and a fancy salad and delicious slice. What we think is even more special is that this also donates lunches to TWO children in Christchurch who need help. The lunches get delivered to you wherever you are and the children's lunches are delivered to their school.
We asked how WE can help. Ben said the best thing we can do to help is to share what they do. By telling other people about this idea they might buy a lunch which will help lots of children.
Please help us share this wonderful idea.
