SILVERDALE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL FOOD PROGRAM
The Second Sunday Food Collections continue to be an important SUMC mission effort. We need nutritious food donations, easy to open, light & small enough to fit in the children’s backpacks. Some examples are Peanut Butter (plastic jars), small boxes of Raisins, 1 Cup servings Mott’s Apple Sauce, Kraft Easy Mac (macaroni/cheese), packets Quaker Instant Grits or Quaker Oatmeal, Juice boxes (Apple and Eve), Snack Pack Puddings, Lance Style Crackers (whole Grain). The staff at the school shares its appreciation for our faithful mission effort and reminds us that, when children are well-fed, they’re happier, healthier and better students. These collections are coordinated by Manna, the hunger awareness activities of our Church and Society committee. “Manna” is also seeking volunteers for our increasingly busy mission work. Call Susan Del Grande (910.326.3316) or Jim Brewster (910.478.9727).
