Friday Food Packs


As you know, the Shoreline School District is conducting classes online due to COVID19. The Friday Food Packs program is pausing distribution of food packs indefinitely as the district continues to distribute weekend food using their resources. When opportunities to continue to support and serve the students in our community have resumed, we look forward to being able to minister to these students and families. 


 

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 at local schools weekly to help ensure that children get adequate food on weekends. Each pack contains packaged food for six meals and two snacks for one child.


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 assemble food packs at the church once a month

- Help deliver weekly food packs to the schools

- Help set up for monthly packings in our church garage
at the end of each month.

 


 WE ARE GROWING:


 2013:
10 kids received weekly food packs

 2020:  Currently 100 kids receive weekly food packs


We now serve four schools: Lake Forest Park Elementary, Brookside Elementary, Kellogg Middle School and Shorecrest High School. In addition, we supply supplemental snacks for Kellogg counselors to distribute to middle school students. 
   

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.

A food pack costs about $10 per week, or roughly $400 per child annually.
