North Scott Community Feed Our Children Ministry
Feed Our Children Ministry provides a free lunch opportunity to our children in the North Scott community during the summer break. During the summer, more than 830 children in our neighborhoods are underserved through the loss of the weekday free and reduced lunch program. Additionally, there are underserved children not yet school age, as well as those recently graduated. For some families, simply having more mouths to feed during the summer places additional stress on existing resources.
Our goal is to provide a free nutritious lunch to children in our community through this twice a week ministry, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, June 11-August 22(NOTE EXCEPTION - NO MEAL JULY 4). Distribution will take place from 11:30-12:30 outside Faith Lutheran Church in Eldridge, Eldridge United Methodist Church in Eldridge, Hope Lutheran Church in Dixon, at the mailbox stop in Mt. Joy, John Glenn Elementary School in Donahue, and in Park View at Manor Drive and Lincoln, Deer Creek, Neil Armstrong Elementary, at the Double Diamonds parking lot, and at Zion Lutheran Church in Princeton.
We need your help! We anticipate serving between 300-400 lunches a week! Volunteers are needed to prepare and serve simple sack lunches. Preparations begin at 10:00 am in the kitchen at Faith Lutheran Church at 500 W. LeClaire Rd, Eldridge. Lunches will be ready by 11:15. We also need volunteers to pick up, deliver and distribute the lunches to communities around North Scott, from 11:15-12:30. If you can give a morning or two, please sign up here or at Faith Lutheran Church. Thank you and God Bless!
