We support twelve families from Emmet D Williams Elementary who are experiencing food insecurity. Each week we pack and deliver bags of food to supplement weekend meals for these families. With support from an ELCA Domestic Hunger grant, and generous donations from our congregation we have been able to support 12 families for the past year.
New this year, we are partnering with The Good Acre Food Hub, which is a collection of small local farms who sell their shares of produce to the community. They have generously agreed to donate their extra produce to the families we support through Bountiful Backpacks. We also hope to include produce from our own community garden in the weekly deliveries.
