Festa Summer Lunch Camp

There are nearly 4000 children in this community, where UALC sits, who are facing poverty. This means they go hungry. They miss meals, especially in the summer the same season they spend majority of their time alone while parents work and the cost of local camps are far beyond reach.  

For 15 years, God has called Festa and UALC to stand in this summer hunger gap providing free Summer Lunch Camps feeding children's body, mind, and spirit. 


New this year, Festa has left the USDA's summer food program and will be buying the daily breakfast and lunches! So, we need you more than ever. 

Today your whole family can be a part of this! As we put together meal kits that serve as extras beyond the lunches we buy and serve daily so that when new children come each day we never have to look at a child and say “I’m sorry we don’t have a lunch for you today."
