Backpack Love, a ministry to feed children in need in our community.
Through the Backpack Love partnerships of area churches we are helping to feed over 375 families in our community each week. And we at Life Church have committed to helping feed at least 12 of those families.
Here’s how each of you can help:
This month we are asking each Life Church family to bring as many items as they can from the foods needed each Sunday.
The following are good suggestions. They are normally the most economical items and are frequently on sale. If for example, Pop Tarts are not on sale, simply substitute another breakfast option. If pasta and sauce are too expensive one week, provide an alternative dinner option.
Small cereal boxes
Instant Oatmeal (Individual or 18oz)
Instant Grits (Individual or 18oz)
Fruit Cups of Canned Fruit
Fruit Snack Gummies
Lunch and Dinner
Canned Foods (Ravioli, Soups, Vegetables)
1lb Bag of Rice
1lb Bag of Beans
Macaroni and Cheese
12 Peanut Butter and Jelly (Plastic Jars)
