Operation Sandwich Delivers Weekly Meals Amid COVID-19
Bridges of Hope is offering its Operation Sandwich Program in Brainerd this summer by providing free meals to children and families in need. Volunteers are distributing a week’s supply of lunches to minimize face-to-face contact.
Operation Sandwich is a grassroots program that started several years ago to end childhood hunger by feeding children throughout the Brainerd Lakes area with free meals when lunch is not accessible.
Because of COVID-19 concerns, staff members organized a way to offer lunches weekly instead of everyday. Over 150 individuals have received lunches in the first week, and Nisswa, Pequot Lakes, and Pine River will begin distributions next week on June 4th.
