One out of four or five children in our country is hungry (38,000 in Hartford County alone). FVAMC is proud to partner with Outreach Inc. – Kids Care in their mission to feed them all. Outreach Inc. organizes food packaging events and then distributes the meals to regional food banks, local food shelves and Mobile Foodshare.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, we held our inaugural food packing event (2015 MLK Food Packing Event) on Saturday January 17th, 2015, and by the grace of God, it was a huge success! We surpassed our goal of 25,000 meals to pack over 35,000. Over 200 volunteers from 25 faith and civic groups participated. For photos of the event, visit our Facebook and be sure to like us.
