“Eat One, Give One”

 Set aside 25 cents or more for every meal you eat for the 40 Days of Lent


WHAT:  Help raise $2,500 in order to obtain the supplies to prepare 10,000 meals in 2 hours.   

 HOW:  Please set a box or container aside in your household to fill with loose change during Lent.  Feel free to decorate your boxes or containers and turn them in at the end of Lent.

 RESULT:  Each meal packaged (roughly the size of a large sandwich bag) will feed SIX people. The meals are shipped to schools in very poor countries. Families choose to send their children to school because the students are the ones to receive the packages and bring them home to feed their families. Thus, not only are you helping to stop hunger, but also helping to promote education and a means to a better life.

 EVENT:  After Easter, information will be shared with St. Stephen Martyr’s youth groups with the date and time we will assemble to package these meals.

 Thank you to all who made our first year so successful and rewarding.  We thank you, in advance, for your generosity and support for this second year.

 Please contact Patti Dominick ( or Jen Hines ( if you would like to help coordinate this effort or have any questions.
