Food For Kids
Randy Kelley, Principal of South Woods Elementary, will be our Minute for Mission guest on Sunday, September 25th and will speak about Food 4 Kids. This outreach program has been providing meals for children in need for over 6 ½ years. Currently the program is able to serve over 250 children in this school where 77% of the 600 student population is considered economically disadvantaged. Many students are able to receive free or reduced price breakfasts and lunches, but without a Food 4 Kids backpack to take home on Friday, would have little to eat over the week-end. Through careful research and selective purchasing, we are able to provide nourishment as a cost of $5.80 per week; or $25 per month; or $300 per year.
