The congregation of First United Methodist Church continues to contribute food and hard work toward this wonderful ministry. At the beginning of 2019, we are providing food to 150 children at four local schools. Carr Memorial Methodist Church is now providing food to one of schools we partnered with in the past. We are excited to see other churches getting involved in feeding hungry children in our area.
We can always use help with food pickup, the preparation (counting and arranging on tables), packaging, and delivery to the schools. Contact the church office if you would like to help.
Kristen Neal, a Pikeview teacher, and four of her Student Council members delivered a mountain of food collected by the students at Pikeview High School for our Feeding Hungry Children weekend food ministry. The JROTC contributed to the project in a major way. We are so impressed with their hard work and so proud of these amazing students and the teachers that lead them.
Our church 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.
