It is happening in Montgomery County! There are school children in our system who may not eat between lunch on Friday and breakfast on Monday. That’s correct. We have children, right here in our area, and across the nation who may go for up to 67 hours with no food every week.
We have found a way to help. The F.U.E.L. program is a food subsidization program that places food directly in the back packs of these children every Friday afternoon.
Grace Church has partnered with the Montgomery County FUEL program and is currently sponsoring Northeast Elementary, which is located about a mile from the Grace campus. Every week volunteers from Grace take food supplies to the school to assure that needy children do not go hungry over the weekend. You can participate by donating food items, or helping with the weekly distribution. Amanda Smith organizes this ministry for Grace and can be contacted by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
