Marie G. Davis School | Weekend Food Bag
MEET OUR PARTNER:
In 2019, we came together as a church community to pack 5,000 weekend food bags for the scholars at Marie G Davis School. This program was designed to ensure children, who relied on 2 meals a day at school, had access to food over the weekend. The pandemic has changed our world in many big ways, but not in this way. Children still need access to food when school is not in session, so this year, we will ask members to pack food bags at home.
We look forward to the hard work you will put into making this happen from your home! Embrace the presence of the Spirit as you assemble these bags. Pray over the bags, consider the homes they will enter and our sisters and brothers whom they will sustain, and lift them to God.
Please see all the details of this CHURCH WIDE program below.
September 27, 3pm – Plastic bag pick up
October 4-8, 3-5pm – Food bag drive-through drop-off
WHAT TO PACK: The ingredients in each bag were carefully selected to best balance nutrition, ease of preparation, portability, storage concerns and financial sustainability. Please pack exactly what is listed below. This will maintain equity within the community receiving these meals.
Please pack items in plastic bags – gallon Ziploc bags or plastic grocery/target/Walmart bag – to avoid spills and bag breakage. If you need bags for packing, you can pick them up from the Parish life building portico on September 27 at 3pm or contact firstname.lastname@example.org!
