Do you have extra plastic grocery bags?

Wheat Ridge ‘Feed 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.

Plastic Grocery Bag Collection

Feed the Future Backpack Program

A group of volunteers from our congregation help bag the food for the weekend at Stevens Elementary for Feed the Future Backpack Program.

The LWML is asking you to join with them as we collect plastic grocery bags for the volunteers bagging the groceries each week. Two elementary schools in the Wheat Ridge area, Pennington and Kullerstrand, benefit from this program. This will be an on-going collection. Let’s fill the treasure chest in the narthex. Thank You!
