Feeding Hungry Children

 The congregation of First United Methodist Church continues to contribute food and hard work toward this wonderful ministry. At the beginning of the 2017-18 school year, we are providing food to 105 children at four local schools. Carr Memorial Methodist Church is now providing food to one of schools we partnered with last year. We are excited to see other churches getting involved in feeding hungry children in our area.

 

The video below helps explain why this ministry is so important. We need your support to keep it going. Please consider sponsoring a child for $15 per month and helping with organizing and packing food. 

 

 

November 2016 Feeding Hungry Children Support

 

Each turkey feather in the photo represented one child being sponsored for one month's food. It was heartwarming to see how fast the feathers were added, with many being displayed on the floor in front of the turkey. Much work still needs to be done, but much appreciation for the support thus far.

  The Princeton Senior High School Key Club collected for the Feeding Hungry Children Project and raised a whopping $904.85! A special thanks to Madison Knight who organized it! Great job! 

 

Our committee has chosen the list below as items that will be provided to these children. We continue to ask for your help! Could you please take this list with you when going to the grocery store?  These items have been selected because of the nutritional value, the ease in which a child can open them, and the cost effectiveness of each item. If you could pick up one or two items to help us share the harvest, we will have enough items to continue the project for these children who might otherwise have little or no food during a weekend. If we purchase these specific items we will enhance the nutrition these children receive.
