Feed Our Kids

Abiding Grace will be participating in the Feed Our Kids summer program June 6-10 and August 15-19.
 
Feed Our Kids is a community lunch program coordinated by GRACE to provide lunches during the summer to children who would receive free or reduced lunches at school during the school year.  Groups of volunteers provide lunches for children at 6 apartment/trailer park sites in the area.
 
Abiding Grace needs about 6 volunteers a day for those 2 weeks from 10:30 until 12:45 to make, deliver, and serve the lunches. Additionally we can provide stories, play, or craft opportunities during the 11:45 - 12:45 lunch period.  Our site is outside in front of the GRACE office and will serve children who live in the trailer park across the street.  Volunteers will be making lunches at a member home at 10:30 and then delivering and serving the lunches at the site 11:45 to 12:45. Anyone that can make a sandwich, cut fruit, count out supplies, or facilitate play would make a great volunteer.
 
Abiding Grace will also be collecting lunch items for our weeks on Sunday, June 5 as part of our mission focus. Please bring lunch sacks, sandwich bags, fresh fruit, individual packs of chips, cookies, sandwich meat, etc., that Sunday. 
 
Sign up sheets will be out on the Welcome Table on Sundays.  Patti Langsdale, Phil or Sally Hart, Terri Sakakeeny and many others have participated in the program in the past and can answer questions.
