Friday Food Packs


 

OUR MINISTRY:

As a neighborhood outreach ministry of Lake Forest Park Presbyterian Church, we provide supplemental food during the school year to local students in need. Food packs are distributed to local schools weekly and bi-weekly to help ensure that children get adequate food on weekends.


UNDERSTAND:

Hunger doesn’t take the weekend off.  During the school year, more than 200 children in our community don’t have enough to eat on the weekends. These children eat school-provided lunches as their main source of nutrition during the week. As a result, they are often hungry over the weekends. Hunger contributes to stress, headaches, fatigue, malnutrition and inability to concentrate. Children who are nourished can return to school on Mondays ready to learn and perform in class.


 ACT:

VOLUNTEER:

- Help deliver food boxes to the schools
- Help unpack food deliveries in our church garage.

 

 

 


 WE ARE GROWING:

 2013: 10 kids received weekly food packs
 2020:  100 kids received weekly food packs
 2022:  Currently 40 students receive weekly food as we begin our services again after a two-year pause.

 
We serve Kellogg Middle School with a variety of items for their food pantry and Shorecrest High School with pre-packaged food for counselors to distribute to students as needs arise.     

We continue to expand this ministry to reach each child in need at school.
We need your help to continue to serve children who benefit from Friday Food Packs. 


RESPOND:

Pantry food for each student costs about $10 per week, or roughly $400 per child annually. 
Please consider sponsoring a child for $40 a month (September - June). 
100% of your donation is spent on the
Friday Food Packs Ministry.
