North Scott Community Feed Our Children
Feed Our Children ministry has been established to provide a free lunch opportunity to our children in the North Scott community.
During the summer break, hundreds of children in our neighborhoods are underserved. Our goal is to provide a free, nutritious lunch to underserved children in our community on Tuesdays and Thursdays from June 11-August 22. Lunches are assembled at our church and distributed from 11:30am-12:30pm at our church and these locations: United Methodist Church Eldridge, John Glenn Elementary School Donahue, Hope Lutheran Church Dixon, Zion Lutheran Church Princeton, SONShine Ministries Mt. Joy, Double Diamonds Lot Park View, Neil Armstrong Elementary School Park View, Manor Drive and Lincoln Park View.
Volunteers are needed to prepare lunches at 10:00 am at our church.
Volunteers are needed from 11:15 am-12:30 pm to distribute lunches at our church and sites in Dixon, Long Grove, McCausland, Park View, Mt. Joy and Princeton.
Donations are needed for these items: sliced bread, cheese slices, smooth peanut butter, grape jam (not jelly), potato chips, 100% juice boxes (not orange juice), Oreos, Rice Krispie Treats, Go-Gurts, string cheese, fruit and applesauce cups, sandwich baggies and paper lunch bags.
Prayers are needed for this ministry – for children in need, as well as those who serve. Please share the news of this ministry and let us know of children in need.
