Lunch Connection is a free lunch program that has been established to support the students of local schools in vulnerable neighbourhoods, where food insecurity is a daily struggle. These programs exist to provide a free hot meal at lunch time in a safe environment where children are valued for who they are while connecting with a community that cares for them! Lunch Connection offers physical, emotional and spiritual support to the children, youth and families of Saint John. Our goal is to demonstrate Christian values in a meaningful and practical way!
Currently, there are a total of approximately 450 children in three different schools registered in the Lunch Connection hot lunch program and more than 45,000 meals are served each year to the youth of Saint John Inner City neighbourhoods!
Each Monday we partner with Trinity Church for their "Manwich Mondays" program . They provide a hot lunch program for students from St. Malachy's and Saint John High. It has become a great place for the kids to socalize and to get a free meal!
