F.U.E.L Program

Through discussion with the Montgomery County School System Nutrition Department, we have learned that approximately 1,000 children go home each weekend with no food to eat. That means from Friday at lunchtime to Monday at breakfast they have little or nothing to eat. 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 and 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 before church 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 by:
donating food items
donating money to purchase the food items
bagging the items
delivering the items to the schools

The food items we need donated are:
pop tarts
small individual cereal boxes
breakfast bars
granola bars
juice boxes
juice pouches
individual apple sauce
individual fruit cups
individual raisin boxes
cheese crackers
cheese/dippin sticks
peanut butter crackers
tuna in a pouch
nuts in a pouch
peanut butter snack sticks
fruit rollups
fruit twisters
individual pudding snacks
anything else that is individually wrapped, ready to eat, and does not require a can opener, refrigeration, or cooking
