Included as one of HuffPost Religion’s “100 Religious Groups Doing Good in the World Today“
This program began in the summer of 2009 to serve the children of Arlington, Sandgate and Sunderland Vermont in conjunction with Fisher Elementary School and Sunderland Elementary School as well as Happy Days Playschool and Arlington Memorial High School. Each week a bag of fixings for a week’s worth of lunches, including a coupon for a half-gallon of milk is given per child. We also distribute donated fresh produce and often a book or small toy or other item. All of the snack items included in the bag are donated through local churches.
This totally volunteer and locally funded program would not be possible without the support of the following businesses and organizations. THANK YOU!
