Christian Service Center offers summer breakfast & lunch backpack program
The Christian Service Center is again offering its Summer Food Program for Orange Beach and Gulf Shores school children. Any student who qualifies for subsidized breakfast and lunch is eligible. The Summer Backpack Program provides an easy to prepare breakfast, lunch and two snacks for each day, five days a week.
Sign up by calling the Center at 251-968-5256. Then parents can come by the Center once a week between 9 am – Noon, Monday-Friday, to pick up a bag for each of their children. Even though the Gulf Shores schools have a summer lunch program in place, any family unable to take advantage of that program is welcome to come to the Center. We are located at 317 Dolphin Ave., Gulf Shores.
The Christian Service Center is a “Hand Up” rather than a “Hand Out” agency. Clients are given immediate emergency aid as well as guidance on finding solutions to their problems. The CSC is a 100% volunteer agency funded by the churches of Pleasure Island, various community organizations, including the United Way of Baldwin County, and interested individuals. For more information please call the CSC at 251-968-5256 or visit cscgs.com.
