Feeding the Hungry at Roosevelt - Bite2Go

During this month of November when our thoughts run to big Thanksgiving feasts, we’d like to draw your attention to a way you can support children and families of Roosevelt Elementary who struggle to keep enough food on the table. We will partner with At the Core, a non-profit started by a local youth pastor, as well as 2nd Harvest to provide Bite2Go kits for the most food insecure of the children at Roosevelt. These kits contain nutritious, easy-to open, non-perishable food items, with four meals and three snacks for each weekend.

Over 60% of the Roosevelt kids receive free and reduced lunch; we are seeking to support the families from within this population that have the greatest need. We are hoping that folks from our congregation will step forward to support 25 students. It costs $12/month ($144/year) to provide food kits for one student over the school year. This is a great opportunity for many more people within the FPC family to connect with our ministry at Roosevelt School and with neighborhood families. There will be an information table in the Reception Room during the Common Hour on November 15 and 22 with an opportunity to learn more and sign-up.

About 23% of the children within Spokane have families living below the poverty line; that rate gets much higher when looking at the Roosevelt service area. Hunger may limit a child’s ability to learn and often leads to classroom disruptions that affect all students. Reducing their hunger is one way for us share the love of Christ with these kids. Might God be calling you to join with us in serving our neighbors in this way?

If you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then your light will rise in the darkness, and your night will become like the noonday. (Isaiah 58:10)
