Backpack Food Program

School Backpack Food Program

SCHOOL BACKPACK FOOD MINISTRY

We are often reminded of the ways God calls us to live as disciples of Jesus. One of these is our backpack ministry, which provides food for children on reduced or free lunch and breakfast program at the school. This program provides them with meals in the day during the school year. The problem is, on the weekends, statistics show that many of these children go without proper nourishment, and often without any food at all. This should not happen. Therefore, we are continuing to help these children and their families experience the love of Christ through our backpack food ministry. We provide a bag full of nutritious food for the children participating in our backpack program each weekend, to ensure they have enough nourishment to see them through the weekend.

We collect canned goods listed below, as well as money, to support this important ministry. 100% of our Ash Wednesday offering went to support this important backpack food ministry.

Please consider bringing some of the items from the following list. On Sunday mornings, your donation may be dropped off at the table in the Narthex. During the week, Mondays-Thursdays, we will gladly receive your gifts in the church office. Thank you for generous support of this important mission, as we seek to eliminate food insecurity here in our community.

CANNED GOODS: GREEN BEANS, CORN, PINTO BEANS, RAVIOLI, SPAGHETTI SAUCE, CHICKEN SOUP, TOMATO SOUP, APPLESAUCE, OR MIXED FRUIT
