Overview

The Food for Kids Ministry prepares bags of food for children to take home to ensure that the kids have food to eat on the weekends. Every Friday, since March 2012, sacks of food have been taken to a local school where children in need can take food home to their families on the weekend. 

Volunteers shop, pack, and deliver the food to the school. 

What's included

Each Food for Kids sack includes:

  • 1 lb. brown rice
  • 1 can beans (red or black)
  • 2 cans vegetables
  • 1 can fruit
  • 1 lb. box of pasta
  • 1 can pasta sauce
  • 1 box mac and cheese
  • 1 box cereal
  • 1 jar peanut butter
  • 1 jar jelly
  • 1 loaf bread

Donations

If you would like to donate items to this ministry, bring any items from the list above to the church at any time. We encourage you to purchase items which are organic, low sodium, low sugar, and whole grain. The jars of peanut butter and jelly must be plastic containers. 

Monetary donations are also accepted and a group of volunteers will do the shopping for you!
