F.U.E.L. Ministry

A food subsidization program designed to feed children whose only food source may be the food they are receiving at school. All across America children are going without food every weekend. That means for up to 67 hours each weekend school-age children are going without food. Most of these children are on state assistance however the food is not getting to the kids. YOU CAN HELP!

Specific foods are gathered at churches and placed into grocery style bags. The bags are delivered to the school and placed directly into the backpacks of the children. The children are selected by the schools, not based on income, but on signs of hunger. The food and funds are gathered at your church, distributed by your church and to the school you select.

This ministry has been in operation for three years. At no time have any of the churches had to use money from the church budget. This program operates on “second mile” giving at all of the churches. Some churches fed three children while others feed 85 children.

Please allow us to help you eliminate child hunger in your community.

Bag Details

All it takes is $5.15 to supply one child for the weekend.

Hungry children struggle to learn, underachieve academically, experience poor health, and are at risk of not graduating. We can help you end child hunger in your community. History shows children fed by our program experience increased academic scores, are better citizens in the classroom, and are more likely to come to school every day.
