Lunchbox Deli


Click Here to Sponsor a Hero or Family Today!

The Lunch Box Deli is located on Aberdeen Proving Ground where we serve those who are the backbone of our nation’s security. From Soldiers to Department of Defense Contractors and Government Employees, these are our customers. Due to the sheer number of employees on this post, the Garrison requested over a month ago that those employees who can tele-work do so for an undetermined amount of time. Unfortunately, this left a small business like ours without our customers. We heard from many concerned customers in regards to how we might ride this crisis out. While brainstorming, it became evident that during this time of need, we with the help of our customers and the community could provide an avenue for those who would like to give back to those individuals that are on the front lines of this very crisis. 

As this pandemic goes on it has been evident that many families and individuals in Harford County are finding it difficult to provide for their own. Please consider participating in our Feeding Our Heroes Campaign. During this time when we are unable to serve our regular customers our employees are proud to prepare lunches for area hospitals, urgent care facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and families in our area that are in need of a meal or two. Your generous contribution will allow hundreds of first responders and families in need to eat a decent meal when options are extremely limited. If you would like to sponsor a first responder or a family you will find below the many ways you can participate:

Pay it Forward: Are you an employee on APG who frequents the Lunch Box? Estimate the number of lunches you buy for yourself per week and donate those lunches to a first responder or an individual in need.

Sponsorship: Are you a local contractor who would like to donate a specific dollar amount to contribute to our program. The cost of one lunch is $10 and includes a sandwich, salad or wrap as well as a bag of chips, drink and a cupcake.

Donation: Are you a local community member who would like to just do your part? Consider buying a meal for a local responder or a family in need.

Volunteer: Depending on the success of our program we may need volunteers to deliver lunches to facilities. Interested? Email us at [email protected] 

Please note it is the Lunch Box’s discretion as to where and how meals meals are distributed.

Meals will be delivered to First Responders in the areas of Baltimore City and County, Cecil and Harford Counties. Meals will be provided to families in need here in Harford County through Harford Family House, SARC and Welcome One Emergency Shelter.
