Remember that SUV full of food? We're sending it out!
In April, a Faith/School Summit was held, to bring together area churches, schools, and agencies to address hunger and other issues by working together as a community. The response has been overwhelming!
The premise of the Food Box program is that one "box" of food feeds one family for one week.
The Lutheran Coalition churches have pledged a combined $6,000 for this food box ministry, which will result in over 120 boxes of food. We meet together about every 2 weeks to pack the boxes, then send them out with members to be delivered to homes around the High Country.
The response has been incredible. The generosity, overwhelming. God is multiplying our efforts to address hunger in our community.
Look for stories on this ministry to appear in the Watauga Democrat newspaper, and the NC Synod e-News.
