We have a great opportunity to get the kids of RRC involved with serving children through a local organization. Kids Food Basket is a non-profit organization based in Grand Rapids. Their mission is to ensure that children in our community do not go to bed hungry. They currently serve nearly 5,000 kids each day.
We have already begun to help by decorating extra-large lunch bags during Sunday School. You are welcome (and encouraged) to join with us and purchase extra-large bags and decorate them at home!
Starting now, we are collecting portable snack items (which can be placed on the stage in the Old Fellowship Hall or by the fireplace in the Youth Room):
- Granola bars
- 100% juice boxes
- Cracker packs
- Individual fruit cups, pudding cups, gelatin cups
- Peanut butter
- Cheerios (plain)
- 100% fruit packs
On Sunday, April 28, a group of us will be going to help fill “sack supper” bags from 4:30-6pm. This is for both Caravan kids (K-5th) and their parents. We can have 25-30 in our group. There is a sign-up sheet at the Caravan counter, or you can sign up on the Table in the “Parents of Children” group. If you have any questions, please contact Beth Jennings.
On Saturday, April 27, a group of us will be going to help fill “sack supper” bags from 2-4:30pm. We can only have 25-30 in our group so you will need to sign up by contacting Trisha ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to everyone who helped by donating or packing sack lunches for Kids’ Food Basket. We donated over 700lbs of food! Below are notes from kids who received those lunches:
