BackPack Weekend Food Bags at Spencer Elementary

With an amazing outpouring of Community Support from individuals, businesses, churches and civic groups we are preparing to closeout our second year of providing a weekend supply of food to children who are at risk. Each week volunteers pack, deliver and distribute bags containing 3 Breakfasts, 1 -2 Lunch Items, Fresh or packaged fruit or vegetables, and snacks. The items can be eaten directly from the package or prepared by the child with little training on cooking safety.


Our Program is currently available for any child in Spencer Elementary. There are no income restrictions or qualifiers. We believe that NO CHILD should have to go to school hungry or have to spend the weekend without basic food and nutrition. Sign-up forms are available in the Office at the school.


For more information on the BackPack Program and how young lives are being touched, call the church at 304-927-4427 or stop in during the week. To make a financial contribution, make your check payable to Memorial United Methodist Church and write BackPack Program on the memo line.
