Daily Lunch

A nutritious, hot lunch is served every Monday through Friday at noon.

At Broomfield CME Church we serve between 100 and 150 meals daily.

At Greater Mount Moriah we serve between 200 and 300 meals daily.

At Freddie & Susie's we provide hearty bag lunches on Saturday and Sundays

The volunteers take care to make each meal special, serving such specialties as Chicken Divan, Shepherd's Pie, Lasagna and Crab Tortellini, so that no one feels 'second class.' Traditional holiday fare is served on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter.

Camp Camille

The umbrella program for our Children's Services is Camp Camille. It is a unique ongoing experience for the children we see through our lunch programs. Children are registered, then mentored. They receive all necessary school supplies along with a book bag. Groceries are provided to their families so there is always plenty of nutritious food at home. Activities planned for the children include trips to: The Science Museum, Putt Putt, Chuck E. Cheese, Busch Gardens, the Children's Museum, bowling, movies, baseball games, swim parties, camping - just to name a few. We feel it is important for these disadvantaged children to not miss out on some important life experiences. Camp Camille provides these experiences in a loving, well chaperoned, and save environment.
