Update. We served 1,240 lunches during our two weeks this year! Thanks to our leaders for their amazing work: Jane Seris, Sally Hart, Bridgette Shamburger and Patti Langsdale. Thanks to the more than forty volunteers who prepared and served the lunches and to members who donated food and supplies for this important ministry.

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 sixth year Abiding Grace will be participating. Feed Our Kids was our first ministry in 2010—even before our first worship service!

We will be serving lunches for 60 to 80 children on June 8-12 and June 22-26 at the GRACE facility on Shady Brook and Scribner. Bridgette Shamburger and Patti Langsdale will be leading the first week, and Jane Seris and Sally Hart will be leading the second. We will need 6-8 volunteers each day to prepare and serve the lunches.

During May and June we will be collecting items needed for the lunches:
  • Plastic zip-lock type sandwich-size bags 
  • Brown paper lunch bags
  • Boxes of individual serving bags of chips
  • Gift cards to Costco or Kroger
Please drop off non-perishable supplies on the table near the Outreach bulletin board. We are also looking for dessert bakers: cookies, cupcakes, etc. On June 7 and June 21 (the Sundays before our weeks) we will be collecting fresh fruit: oranges, apples and watermelon.
