Food From the Heart

This is a sack lunch assistance ministry committed to providing free meals for children at-risk of going hungry during weekends and extended school holidays. We currently partner with Red Duke Elementary and Don Jeter Elementary.

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...." Matthew 25:35

"Truly I tell you whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine you did for me."

Matthew 25:40 NIV


How  Can I Help?

There are so many ways that you can get involved with this awesome ministry.   The following are some of the ways you can get involved:


  1. Packing lunches, 75 lunches are needed a week and even more on holidays. 
  2. Delivering lunches to Red Duke Elementary and Don Jeter Elementary.
  3. Decorating lunch bags.
  4. Praying over the lunches and the families that will receive them.
  5. Donating food (check out the food donation list)
  6. Give financially to the "Food From the Heart" designated fund(see donations button at bottom of page or send check to church with Food from the Heart in the memo).


We have a specific set of requirements for the food that is distributed to our children. All items MUST be in single-serve packages – we cannot re-package into smaller portion sizes, so they must be in ready-to-serve packaging.   

Examples include:

  • Single-Serving Pasta/Ravioli (Sold in packages of 4-6, such as Easy Mac or Chef Boyardee Microwavable Ravioli)
  • Single-Serving Breakfast Cereal (individually wrapped servings, typically in a cup or mini-box)
  • Bottled Water
  • Juice Boxes or Pouches
  • Fruit Cups/Apple Sauce Cups
  • Fruit Snacks
  • Single-Serving Dry Snacks (Such as pretzels, cheese crackers, animal crackers)
