With school back in session, we will be switching back to our After School Meal hours for our Brown Bag Diner. If you need a daily meal, you can sign just stop by during our Brown Bag Diner hours which are Tuesday - Thursday from 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm.
WHAT IS THE BAY SIX: BROWN BAG DINER?
We know that there are kids (and adults) in every community who do not get enough to eat. Most students will eat lunch during the school year in school at around 11 am or Noon then will go until 6 pm or later before eating dinner. Some not eating breakfast, and some even not guaranteed dinner. On the weekends or during summer break it can become unbearable. In hopes to combat hunger and serve the students in the community, we have once again partnered with Indian Creek Schools to be able to serve as many meals as needed to makes sure that every student has enough to eat this summer.
So starting on Tuesday, August 31, 2021 we will begin serving meals daily as part of our Bay Six: Brown Bag Diner After School Meal Program. This project allows for students to stop down at our location in Mingo Junction, Ohio between 2:30 pm and 5:30 pm Tuesday through Thursday and grab a FREE "brown bag" meal.
Each meal consists of 6 items typically: a main choice , a salty snack, a sweet treat, a healthy side, a drink, and then a breakfast item for the next day. They can choose to eat it in our building, or take it home with them.
We are believing that Bay Six: Brown Bag Diner will continue to make a huge impact in this community like we were able to in 2020 when we served over 70,000 meals to students and their families. That was only possible through our partnership with Indian Creek Schools and people like YOU getting involved. It will be funded/ supplied solely by donations from people in community. Those people, who hope to see that every person has enough to eat each day despite differences in social status, race, or beliefs will be the main reason this project succeeds. Please consider getting involved by either donating food items (contact us for donation delivery/pick up options), or by making a monetary donation by clicking HERE.
Thank you all in advance! We are only doing this out of a desire to continue to fulfill our vision of meeting basic needs of people in our #commUNiTY and beyond.
