Back Pack Buddies

Backpack Buddies is designed to feed children at Lincoln School (grades K - 8)  whose families qualify for free/reduced school meals and have little or no food on the weekends.  Teachers from Lincoln give us a list of those children.  The Ministry provides bags every Friday afternoon during the school year of healthy, nutritious, ready to eat food.

Opportunities to Serve -

Tuesday mornings | Shop for groceries and stock the designated shelves for later packing
