We are one week away from kicking off our summer feeding programs! With deep gratitude and appreciation to all of our volunteers we will serve close to 32,000 meals this summer. We have many weeks and individual dates still available this summer and we need you!
We currently have an URGENT need for volunteers:
Feed Our Kids – Friday, June 4th at our Courtyards site
GRACE Grocery Giveaway – Thursday, June 3rd at the Pantry.
These programs are two ways our community works with GRACE to address food insecurity in our area! Food insecurity refers to the lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods. Food insecure children are those children living in households experiencing food insecurity. The rate of food insecurity for children in Tarrant County surpasses the national rate by over 3.7%. This means, many children in Tarrant County live in families who do not have adequate and healthy food for all household members.
These two programs are fun and really make you feel like you’ve made an immediate difference in a child or families life.
If you’re interested in being a part of FOK or GGG this summer, especially with the early urgent dates or later in the summer, please contact Beth Chernik at firstname.lastname@example.org Mobile: 817-690-4136
