Through discussion with the Montgomery County School System Nutrition Department, we have learned that approximately 1,000 children go home each weekend with little or no food to eat. That means from Friday at lunchtime to Monday at breakfast, they have a need for food that is not being met. We want to help these children. With the parents’ permission, on Fridays we send home a bag of food items with the child. These food items come from each food group, can be easily opened, and require no refrigeration or cooking. These bags are placed in the children’s backpacks very discretely. The items are bagged on Wednesday evening here at the building and delivered to the schools on Thursday. We are currently providing the FUEL bags for 100 children in 2 elementary schools – Byrns Darden and Hazelwood.
We need your help!
You can help by:
Donate food items – a list is on each table in the Worship Center
Donate money to purchase the food items
Help bag the items
Deliver the items to the schools
Recycle the cardboard boxes – the money will help buy food for the ministry
If you can help or need more info, see David Schmittou or Tammy Sharp.
