Many school-aged children get breakfast and lunch at school during the school year.Â About half of Sullivan, Missouriâ€™s school children qualify for free or reduced lunches. Over the weekends, however, many children do not have access to food.Â The Grace United Methodist Congregation is filling this gap by providing â€œbackpack snacks.â€Â The backpacks contain healthy, nutritious snacks for these children to take home each weekend. Items in the backpacks include things like shelf-stable milk, pasta bowls, fruit juice, applesauce, peanut butter, mac and cheese, and granola bars.
We are so very appreciative of the Grace media team and their pastor Steve Williams for making this video and giving us permission to use it for a MissionCast.
