Punks with Lunch Lansing is a not-for-profit, non-religious, non-political outreach organization. We strive to inspire, motivate and grow community involvement. Inspire by discussing with others various ways of resolving our communities ailments, motivate by putting those solutions to action with your feet on the ground, and grow that community involvement through encouraging others to join in. Our objective is simple... spread love, spread compassion, and create a better community.
We conduct organized outreach activities every other Saturday at Reutter Park and surrounding areas. We provide food, hygiene items, clothing (socks & underwear), camping items (tents and sleeping bags), and harm reduction items to those in need.
We provide people with our time, our ears, our hearts and that ever important sense of acceptance.
In November of 2017 the first donation drive was conducted in conjunction with Food Not Bombs Lansing and was a stunning success, bringing in a plethora of winter clothing, food and cash donations. The first outreach event, an impromptu outing, was on Thanksgiving day 2017, with the disbursement of lunches and winter clothing in downtown Lansing.
The first official outing, again in conjunction with Food Not Bombs, took place on December 2nd, 2017, with warm meals, take home sack lunches and warm clothing being distributed to those in need. The support of several local organizations, both not for profit and for profit, have helped the launch of this dream.
