First Presbyterian Church has supported Take Away Hunger (formerly Kids Against Hunger) for several years. We have donated money and have also had crews of folks who pack the meals. Money from the Cookie Walk and Bazaar, Mission Council, and often a few private donations allow us to buy enough ingredients for thousands of meals (in 2015, it was 16,000 meals). Packing is accomplished in one morning by two shifts – totaling dozens of awesome workers – between the ages of 3 and 85. It’s always an amazing morning of:
- fun and fellowship with church family
- doing something worthwhile
- helping feed hungry people.
