Feed Our Kids is a program of the Grapevine Relief And Community Exchange (GRACE). It provides over 35,000 lunches for area children during the summer when free school lunches and breakfasts are not available. This will be the seventh year Abiding Grace has participated, beginning in 2010 before even organizing as a worshiping community. We will serving lunches for about 80 children on June 6-10 and June 20-24 at the GRACE facility on Shady Brook and Scribner. We will need 6 to 8 volunteers each day to prepare and serve the lunches. A sign-up sheet is now available at the Outreach table near the music room door at church. 

You can also help by providing needed supplies for the lunches. During May and June we will be collecting the following items:
  • Plastic zip-lock type sandwich-size bags 
  • Brown paper lunch bags
  • Boxes of individual serving bags of chips
Please drop off non-perishable supplies on the Outreach Table near the Music Room door. We are also looking for dessert bakers: cookies, cupcakes, etc. On June 5 and June 19 (the Sundays before our weeks) we will be collecting fresh fruit: oranges, apples and watermelon..
