Feed Our Kids is a program of the Grapevine Relief And Community Exchange (GRACE). It provides lunches for area children during the summer when free school lunches and breakfasts are not available. This is the fifth year Abiding Grace will be participating. Feed Our Kids was our first ministry in 2010—even before our first worship service! We will serving lunches for 60 to 80 children on June 9-13 and June 23-27 at the GRACE facility on Shady Brook and Scribner. Bridgette Shamburger and Jane Seris will be leading the two weeks, respectively. Thank you, ladies! We will need 6-8 volunteers each day to prepare and serve the lunches. Please sign up at church or speak with Bridgette or Jane. We may also do Christian-centered crafts, Bible stories and fun games for the children—adult, teen and children volunteers are welcomed to be part of the fun.

During May and June we will be collecting 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 dessert bakers: cookies, cupcakes, etc. On June 8 and June 22 (the Sundays before our weeks) we will be collecting fresh fruit: oranges, apples and watermelon.

Recap: It was another great year for Feed Our Kids as we prepared and served 888 lunches over our two weeks!
