Wheat Ridge ‘Feeding the Future’ Backpack Program
Various non-profit agencies and individuals have come together to provide an on-going fund which supports the collection and dissemination of food items, each weekend, to students in eight Title I (free/reduced lunch eligible) elementary schools. The program is meant to provide children who are on the School Free and Reduced Lunch program some extra meals to see them through the week-end when they otherwise would go hungry. The program provides two breakfast and two lunch items, two snacks, fruit and vegetables.
Volunteers from our church tries to help the bagging of the items at Stevens Elementary School on Thursday mornings. First bagging for the 2019-2020 school year starts on September 5. Please check in at the office by 8:20 am and you should be done by 9 am. We don’t have a set day to help each month but show up any Thursdays during the school year. Also if you want to help in another way, the annual Feeding the Future 5K will take place on Sat Sept 28 and benefits Wheat Ridge Feeding the Future at all the schools they serve (Kullerstrand, Pennington, Stevens) in Wheat Ridge.

It was great to see your faces this year at Vacation Bible School! Our heartfelt ‘thank you-s’ go out to all who attended, the family members who helped with drop-offs and pick-ups and all of the volunteers who made it possible to make it happen! We closed this year’s VBS with children singing some of the songs they learned then the picnic lunch on Sunday. We hope to see you all again next year!
