 Lunches to go   Starting in March, we’ll begin providing bagged lunches for the RRM’s overnight emergency shelter guests twice a month. In many cases, these bagged lunches may be the only meal that these emergency shelter guests (men, women, and children) will eat for that day. FHBC will be providing all of the items needed to assemble and pack these lunches on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month. From 5:00pm – 6:30pm, you can join us in the back of the Fellowship Hall (near the stage) to pack as many or as few lunches as you’d like. Bagged lunches will be delivered to the RRM on these nights so that they can be distributed the following day.
