Buddy Bags

A bag of food is distributed one weekend a month to 500 or more students at Anderson Elementary School. More than 90% of the children at the school are eligible for the reduced lunch/free lunch program. The children who take a buddy bag of food home have an additional source of food for the weekend and can also share it with other family members. Each bag contains a variety of non-perishable food, such as canned sources of protein, granola bars, oatmeal, and fruit snacks, and can be the basis for up to 6 meals. These bags provide nutritional supplement for children over the weekend.  To volunteer in this ministry, contact Johanne Coleson at 765-644-1784.
