WICHITA, Kan. - Volunteers with GracePoint Church, in Wichita, are making sure people stuck at work on Thanksgiving are getting some good food. More than 1,000 sack lunches are being given to people working across the city.
“We are always looking for unique ways to serve our community, and this happens to be one of
our favorites,” said Senior Pastor Mike Snow, who says that this year the church will be packing
somewhere around 1200 lunches.
The lunches are made of a fresh baked turkey sandwich,
stuffing muffins, cookies, potato chips and a bottle of water.
“The best stories are the ones where workers are really bummed they can’t spend the day with
their families,” Snow said. “Their faces usually light up and they say something like ‘Wait, your
church did this for me?’ and we can simply say, ‘Yeah, it sucks you have to work, but hopefully
we can help make your day better.”
Operation Turkey Sandwich started in 2015, as a way to help first responders, but quickly spread to help everyone who had to work on the holiday.
