Feed Our Kids is a program of GRACE to provide lunches for area children during the summer when free school lunches and breakfasts are not available. Abiding Grace will be providing lunches for 60 to 80 children on June 10-14 and June 24-28 at the GRACE facility on Scribner which serves as the lunch site for the mobile home park across the street. Bridgette Shamburger and Jane Seris/Sally Hart will be leading the two weeks, respectively. We will need 6-8 volunteers each day to prepare and serve the lunches—please sign up at the Feed Our Kids bulletin board outside the music room. Christian-centered crafts, Bible stories and fun games will be provided for the children, and adult, teen and children volunteers are welcomed to be part of the fun. 

Our outreach for May and June is the collection of items needed for the lunches:
  • Plastic zip-lock type sandwich-size bags 
  • Napkins 
  • Paper plates 
  • 8 oz. cups for water/lemonade 
  • Wipes 
  • Individual serving sacks of chips or other snacks 
  • Gift cards to Sam's, Costco or Kroger
We are also looking for cupcake bakers (we have donated icing)—or cookies, too. On June 9 and June 23 (the Sundays before our weeks) we will be collecting fresh fruit: oranges, apples and watermelon.
