MUST Ministries Summer Lunch Program


New Life is honored to be a host site for MUST Ministries Summer Lunch Program again this year. We would love to see our church body actively participate in this outreach throughout the summer. You can sign up for 1 day or multiple days/weeks at a time. You will receive a reminder 2 days prior to the day(s) of your serve. 

Meeting location for this campus is 154 Lakeside Drive, Canton, GA. See individual volunteer roles below to see how you can serve this year. You can sign up for 1 day or multiple days/weeks at a time. You will receive a reminder 2 days prior to the day(s) of your serve. Here's a description of all the available positions:

LEAD VOLUNTEER: (Reports at 9am - times may vary) Each Host Site needs a team of Lead Volunteers to oversee the daily routine. Under the guidance of MUST Ministries, you will ensure the day to day activities of the MUST Summer Lunch Program at your Host Site. Sign up HERE to be a Lead Volunteer.

CHECKER & PACKER(Reports at 9am; serves until 11am - times may vary) Each Host Site needs Checkers & Packers. You will ensure the freshness and accuracy of the many lunches distributed, check each lunch bag to ensure the proper items are included, pack sandwiches into each lunch bag, and make sandwiches as needed. This is the perfect chance for your children to help volunteer their summer mornings. MUST Ministries Volunteer Policy is age 10 and older with their parent or guardian. You may volunteer to be a Checker & Packer once or several times during the summer. Sign up HERE to volunteer as a Checker or Packer.

DRIVERS & RIDERS(Reports at 10:45am; serves until Noon (or until lunches have been completely distributed for the day - times may vary) You will be asked to commit to driving a route at least once a week and allow to a background check. Drivers must be 25 years of age and may be required to attend an orientation meeting. Riders must be at least 18 years of age. Volunteers will drive their own vehicles on the pre-determined routes. There must be a Rider for every Driver. Grab a friend and make a summer time commitment. This is also where you will get to see the children each day when you deliver the smiles and hugs, the MOST rewarding part of this program! CLICK HERE to review complete guidelines before signing up.
