Most Precious Blood Catholic Community
WHAT: Thank you for continuing to help MPB Sunday Lunch Program I (SLP-I*) survive and thrive! Successfully evolved as MPB Time & Treasure, families remain invited to donate supplies needed to prepare sack lunches in their own home, then deliver to their destination.
*Note: Sunday Lunch Program-II / SLP-II serving the North Lincoln Apartments, is still operating as a program separate from SLP-I.
WHO: MPB currently provides lunch support to Olin Apartment affordable housing community. Volunteering families should deliver thier batch to the front desk, before noon. Please call the front desk about 30 minutes prior to delivery, so they can anticipate your arrival: (303)861-8052
WHERE: Deliver to 1420 Logan St, Denver, CO 80203
WHEN: MPB provides 40 lunches to Olin each Sunday. Families may signup for 1 slot = half (20), or 2 slots = the full amount (40). You may signup for multiple Sundays. New dates released seasonally.
HOW: There is no ‘right’ way to make lunches. They should simply include a main, side, fruit, and dessert. If making sandwiches, please go with a version of PB&J or cheese (as an alternative to cold cuts/deli meats.) Otherwise other popular mains include microwavable mac-n-cheese cups, instant Ramen, noodle-cup, etc.
COST: Cost-saving sources include bulk cases (Costo, etc.), $1 bread loaves and other day-old items at the Bimbo bakery outlet as well as $1 packages of sandwich bags/brown lunch sacks at local dollar stores.
These are brown bag gifts and families are encouraged to put their special mark on their lunches. Perhaps an inspiring word, attached to an instant hot cocoa packet?

Thank you for reaching out to others in our shared community, sharing both your Time & Treasure!
