Friday Backpack Ministry

    The Friday Backpack Ministry provides free food items in the student's backpack each Friday to assist families who are struggling to make ends meet. The ministry provides supplemental food for children who would otherwise go without food for the weekend.

    Each Friday various food items are placed in a backpack by church for volunteers and distributed to children.

    Last year Love INC averaged 20 children who received bags of food each Friday. Teachers, counselors and the school nurse can recommend a student if they feel a student would benefit from this program. Often the teacher sees a great improvement in the student's learning ability if they come to school without being hungry in school.

    Love INC provides bags from Kindergarten through 8th grade. Each of Love INC's partner churches chooses a month during the school year where they are responsible to gather the food, pack the bags and deliver them to the school by Friday.

    Love INC appreciates your support and generosity in helping us with this program.
