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 70 children on June 4-8 and June 18-22 with Sally Hart and Patti Langsdale leading the two weeks, respectively. We will need 6-8 volunteers each day to prepare and serve the lunches—sign up begins next Sunday and continues through May. 

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. Bakers can volunteer to make cookies and cupcakes for a delicious home-made treat. “Women in Stitches” are making dresses and shorts for the children so that each child is provided with an article of clothing.  

Our outreach for the month of May will be the collecting of items needed for lunches:
  • Brown paper lunch sacks
  • Plastic sandwich size baggies - we need a lot of these
  • Napkins
  • Paper plates
  • 8oz. cups for water/lemonade
