Free Food For Kids

brownbaglunchappleOne in three children under 18 is at risk for hunger each day on Cape Cod. Beginning on Monday, June 24, sandwich-based meals will be prepared in our church kitchen from 5:00 am to 8:00 am each weekday. The staff will then put the lunches, snacks, and breakfasts together as brownbag meals downstairs in the large classroom. The meals will then be delivered in coolers and served at four meal sites. Free Food for Kids will continue for eight weeks this summer. Church of the Holy Spirit is a sponsor of the Federal Child Nutrition Program.

Our meal sites as of mid-March are two in Chatham, one in Truro, and one in Eastham. Free Food For Kids welcomes all who would like to help in this program throughout the summer. If you are interested please call Ruth W. Campbell, Director, at 413-537-9200 or email her at rwcampbell@verizon.net. She will be giving a presentation about the program at the Sunday morning adult study group on Sunday April 28 at 9:00 am in the Parish Hall. This outreach ministry addresses a serious and hidden need — hungry children on Cape Cod.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food.”
Matthew 25:35

“Truly I tell you, as you did it to one of the least of my family, you did it to me.”
Matthew 25:40
