Help Required



Every week, in addition to a hot breakfast, Hope's Corner distributes over 500 bag lunches to unhoused and low-income people. Our guests love to receive lunch bags decorated with happy and hopeful pictures and messages!  Put your creativity to work and brighten their day! We use size #12 lunch bags that you can purchase at large grocery stores or online. Decorations can be done with markers, pencils, pens or paints, but please no glitter or stickers (which make a mess on our floor). 

What's Needed To Complete

New, size #12 paper lunch bags (brown or white are fine) Crayons, pencils, paints or markers for decorating

Whose Help Is Required

This activity can be completed by an individual, as a family or in a group (class, scout troop, or other group of like-minded kids). An adult assistance may be needed to gather supplies and ensure appropriate messaging, but the activity is geared toward either individual or group involvement and can be primarily executed by the children involved.

Special Requirements


How It Makes A Difference

The decorated lunch bags show our guests that there are people who care about them in the community. Often, people who are unhoused don't feel welcome anywhere and have to move from place to place. The cheerful lunch bags give them hope that their situation can get better.

Where to Serve

From Home/Anywhere*


Collect and organize your supplies. Decorate the lunch bag with cheerful and colorful drawings and/or messages. They can be related to holidays or seasons or just friendly messages, like "Have a great day!" Deliver the decorated bags Hope's Corner - 748 Mercy Street, Mountain View at the following times: Wednesday 8am-12pm Thursdays, 4pm-5pm Friday 9am-12pm Saturdays, 8am - 12 pm You can also email us to arrange another time.
