In partnership with Bosler Memorial Library, Amelia S Givin Library, Carlisle Area School District, Pennsylvania Department of Education, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service, and the United Way of Carlisle and Cumberland County, as well as our 5 site locations,  Project SHARE is excited to offer our Summer Lunch and Learn Program for Kids! Sign up today to give your children great summer activities, a fun learning environment, together with free lunch/nutrition tips.
To many of us, summer vacation brings excitement, but some others are filled with apprehension and uncertainty come summer. Some parents do not know whether they will be able to provide their children with nutritious meals without the free school breakfast and lunch program.
Our Lunch & Learn program was recognized as the Gold Standard by the USDA and the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

As a community, we strive to provide a solution to this problem with this Summer’s Lunch & Learn Program! Local congregations, organizations, school districts, and numerous dedicated volunteers are working towards feeding these hungry bellies as well as their minds with reading and learning enrichment activities, active hands on experiences, and other participatory programming that will make their days a joy. A healthy snack time and a full lunch will be prepared and delivered from Project SHARE’s kids-friendly kitchen directed by our Nutrition Coordinator, Weston, to this year’s 5 site locations including:

Under the guidance of their dedicated teachers children will also partake in crafts, books and relationship building activities.

Summer 2018’s Lunch & Learn will run from June 18th to August 8th on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9:30am to 12pm.

Can you help? Passionate hearts are needed in order for this to be a success, so if you want to know how you can help, here are a few ideas to consider:


As we prepare for another great season of our Summer Lunch & Learn program for kids, we are also recruiting our volunteers, many returning from stellar service in previous years, while others are willing to join us and serve our children for their first year at Summer Lunch & Learn.  All staff go through a background check, at our expense, to protect our children.  Teachers may be on holiday, retired, experience in home schooling or other occupation or passion that has led them to be good teachers and role models for our children.

  • Teachers are recruited to teach a minimum of one 3 day morning week from suggested lesson plans on a teachers selected theme.

  • Class Helpers at each site- working directly with the teachers to help with the children.
    Lesson plans for Class Helpers to be aware of as well.

  • Help prepare meals at Project SHARE to be served at the sites.
  • Be a driver who delivers the prepared food in hot boxes from Project SHARE to the sites.

    • (Call Meagan or Wendy at 249-7773 ext- 232)
  • Assemble weekend “Power Packs” that consist of non-perishable foods easy for children to prepare.
    • (Call Carol Baer at 249-7773)
  • Buy a Southside Deli lunch through the CASD Men’s Volleyball Team campaign here!
  • Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated and helpful for food, transportation, paper supplies, books, art materials, etc.
    • (Call Deb Hess at 249-7773 ext- 233)

Come join the program that is working to feed children this summer while nourishing creativity, opening young minds, and building community!
