No Child Goes Hungry (NCGH) is pleased to provide a $1000 donation to support Luther’s Lunchbox, a program at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI. Carthage College’s Center for Faith and Spirituality created and manage Luther’s Lunchbox to combat student hunger and food insecurity on campus. The bookshelf serves as a free stop-and-go supplementary meal program that will be available to students seven days a week in A. F. Siebert Chapel. The NCGH donation will be used to help supplement the donation of non-perishable items for the bookshelf that are donated by campus faculty and staff.
Seeing how the Luther’s Lunchbox program is filling a need within our student body has been one of my greatest joys,” said Debbie Clark, Carthage College Center for Faith and Spirituality
Assistant to Campus Pastor Kara Baylor. “The Carthage community has stepped up to ensure that the shelves are never empty, which is a big task. The donation from No Child Goes Hungry will go a long way toward filling the shelves—not just with food but also with hygiene items that sometimes our students can’t afford.”
We are pleased to support the efforts of Carthage College’s Center for Faith and Spirituality,” said Rev. Kären Rasmussen, No Child Goes Hungry Founder and Director and an alumna of Carthage College. “Hunger affects individuals and families in all phases of their lives—including college students working hard to obtain an education. The work that the Center for Faith and Spirituality is doing to help ensure students on its campus have access to basic necessities is critical. We hope their work inspires other organizations to create similar programs, and we would value the opportunity to support them as well.
