BENEFITING: MEALS BY GRACE INC
Every night over 30,000 children and their families go to bed hungry in Forsyth County, one of the 10th richest counties in America. The children often struggle to focus at school, frequently sleeping in class due to lack of energy and often to avoid the real physical pain hunger brings with it. Meals by Grace is working to change this. They believe no child should grow up with the pain, the fear, or the insecurity that comes from hunger. They run a program for children and their families that provides nutritious meals that complement the kids’ school lunches, a food pantry, and they also deliver prepared hot food to those with no access to transport. We are seeking to raise $640, a sum that would enable Meals by Grace to purchase two tons of food to be able to feed the families on the program for two full weeks.
