Come and help us Sack Summer Hunger every Saturday this summer from 9:30 am to Noon at the Farmers Branch Campus. With no school during the summer break, students in our community who usually receive free/reduced breakfast and lunch can use some help. We've partnered with Metrocrest Services to deliver food to these families during all school holidays.
Show up or donate if you want to help. A family can be fed for $10 per week. Checks can be made out to The Branch Church with "Sack Summer Hunger" in the memo line.
|How it works
Come to the Farmers Branch Campus, enter the building through the double doors under the car port, and walk into the Family Life Center.
Volunteers will organize the food into an assembly line. You will grab a sack with a unique label and go through the line, filling your sack with the allotted food items such as cereal, bread, peanut butter, and vegetables. When that sack is full, you will take it to the designated spot with the corresponding label.
Once all the bags are filled, everyone will help check these bags to make sure they have the appropriate items in them. Once the bags are filled and checked, teams will be formed in order to travel to homes in the area for distribution. Team leaders will be given a map and a route with the family names and corresponding sack labels.
