The Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church sponsored “Grub Club” supplies lunches for children ages 1-18 years throughout the summer when the School Lunch Program is in recess. The lunches are available at the North County Recreation District from noon to 12:30 pm, five days per week, Monday through Friday. The Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church is the North County area organization which provides the lunches; the volunteers expect to make 3,600 lunches this summer.
To support this effort, on Saturday, July 13, there will be a pulled pork slider dinner and concert by Riverside Drive, a blues rock band. Dinner is at 5:30, concert from 6-8 pm, in the parking lot at 36050 10th St. in Nehalem. Admission is $15/person for dinner and concert.
More volunteers are always welcome to help with the daily sandwich-making and lunch assembly tasks. Contact Bobbie Mosher at 503-368-5612 for more information.
