Volunteer Opportunity:


Volunteers are needed to help The Nest Academy in their vision to provide free lunch for 24 students during our school year by either ordering lunch to be delivered/picked up or donating funds to help us serve them each day.

Lunch is served at 12 noon daily beginning August 24. We currently NEED lunch provided for Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. This could be a one time or ongoing commitment, daily weekly or monthly. Think 'Pizza Friday'.

Due to a pending change in our food service status per our current order, we are temporarily required to serve individually portioned, prepackaged servings from area restaurants and food providers.

This year, we’d like to make it simple. Here are some of The Nest Academy lunch options that are close to the school and cost effective, but our students are NOT picky and we are open to other options.
