Summer sack lunches

Georgia congregation's reach is county-wide

During the summer, Christ Our Shepherd Lutheran in Peachtree City, Ga., works with other churches and the county to provide sack lunches for children.

Last year more than 40 people — from toddlers to grandparents — helped assemble the lunches every Monday, and 26 drivers ran 11 routes to distribute the food.

An average of 324 children were fed each week for a total of 3,084 sandwiches for the summer, said member Mary Brunso.
