Feeding Lunches to Youth
Starts June 6th
FLY is a nonprofit organization that was founded by the Marion Methodist congregation, and since has grown to be a collective partnership with other local churches. The mission of FLY is to provide lunches to students who may not otherwise get one. There are many students on the free or reduced lunch program that miss meals when they are not in school. FLY seeks to bridge the gap for our students and families living in low income neighborhoods throughout Marion and Cedar Rapids.
We will be serving at:
Chapel Ridge: 1 Chapel Ridge Circle Marion, Iowa
Eagle Ridge:1285 Red Fox Way Marion, Iowa
Emerson: 1400 10th Ave Marion, Iowa
Novak Elementary: 401 29th Ave Marion, Iowa
