2017 PVEN Summer Lunch Program

During the 2016 Summer Lunch program, PVEN distributed about 3600 meals to hungry kids.
Our hope is to more than double that over the summer of 2017.
And we could use YOUR help!

If you’re interested in helping distribute meals to kids at local parks and libraries this summer, and particularly if you have already completed the child safety and criminal background checks that many teachers, scout leaders, etc. must complete, PLEASE give us a call.  We need folks to set out meals for kids in the West End between 10AM and 1PM nearly every day of the week.
Please call us at 570 992 3136, or send an email to pven.volunteers@gmail.com to let us know how to contact you.

This year’s program will have 7 sites: Two associated with PV summer school camps, 3 at local parks and rec centers, one at the Western Pocono Library,  and one in Pocono Pines, which will be run by volunteers from Top of the Mountain Food Pantry.

Here’s a quick breakdown of the places where you can bring your kids (ages 0 to 18, or any developmentally disabled person under 21 who is still in the school system.)
