Live the Good: Brown Bag Lunch Drive, August 16 - 28

August 16 - August 28

8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Multi-Day Event

Comfort of your own home

Due to the overwhelming success of our Brown Bag Lunch Drive, we are happy to announce we are repeating this Live the Good event. Will you help us send 2000 brown bag lunches to Shelterhouse in downtown Cincinnati?

The need for brown bag lunches continues. These lunches-to-go are distributed daily to those in search of a meal.

We invite you to join us—separately but together in the spirit of St. Julie—in meeting this need. All volunteers will pack lunches from the comfort of their homes, then deliver completed bags directly to Shelterhouse or the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur Province Office. For a complete list of packing details, including days and times, please see the details below.

Each lunch should include the following:

  • Drink
  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwich (lunch meat sandwiches are hard to store)
  • 1-2 snacks (pre-packaged is preferred but not required)

Additional Items you will need:

  • Brown lunch bags (the sturdier, the better)
  • Sandwich baggies and/or wax paper*
  • Napkins
  • Plastic gloves to be used by volunteers while handling food
  • Hair ties to hold hair back, if applicable

Things to Avoid:

  • Foods requiring utensils
  • Fresh fruit like apples, which may be hard to eat

*Please join the Sisters in their efforts to care for creation and consider using environmentally friendly products when possible.

Suggested (not required) Snacks and Drinks:

  • Protein or granola bars
  • High protein trail mix
  • Fruit cups (many people eat or drink this without using utensils)
  • Capri Sun or small, individual boxed drinks
