Through contact with the public schools system here in Spencer, approximately 180 elementary age children have been identified as having a need of nourished food on the weekends. Through this program, a child will take home a backpack filled with 4 individual meals and 2 snacks. By carrying it home in a bag that can be placed in their backpack they are not singled out from other children. When they get nourishment, they are healthier, they have better focus & study habits and are less likely to miss class.

A 4 week rotating menu has been created with food that can be easily eaten with or without heating up in a microwave, comes in single servings and is nutritious. Total cost runs on an average of $5.75 per week per child.

The bags are packed on Wednesday evenings and delivered to the schools on Friday mornings. It is continuing during 9 weeks of the summer as well.

For this program to continue it takes volunteers, of which we have had several step up already, and continuous donations. A fund has been established at Living Word Church, 905 10th Ave SE, Spencer IA 51301. Put Feed Our Children on the memo line.
