C4C Backpack Ministry Food Drive

C4C Backpack Ministry Food Drive
The C4C Backpack Ministry has begun a Food Drive to help restock its pantry at the beginning of this school year.

It is easy to support the Ministry’s effort to keep filling backpacks for students at Wahl-Coates Elementary School.

Simply pick up a slip of paper from the displays in the Narthex and Commons and purchase the item listed. Return the food to one of the collection bins located below the displays.

Each category of food is nutritional. The C4C Backpack Ministry helps fight hunger for children whose families are food insecure and would otherwise have little to no food on weekends and extended breaks. For over a decade the ministry has been sharing God’s love and our love with the children of Wahl-Coates Elementary School.

Among the recommended food items are diced peaches, breakfast bars, Pop-Tarts, pudding snacks, cans of protein (Chef Boyardee, Ravioli, Beanie Weenies, and Vienna sausage), cereal, apple sauce, and juice boxes. Monetary donations are also appreciated.

Food donations are also accepted throughout the year in the Backpack bin outside of Marianne’s office.
