Backpack Buddies

GFBC partners with our Presbyterian friends at the Kirk of Kildaire to provide food on the weekends for children who live in food insecure homes. This project began at Briarcliff Elementary School, which is less than a mile from the church. We have recently expanded the ministry to Farmington Woods Elementary School, which is also in the church’s neighborhood. At this time we provide over 150 bags per week to families who might not have any extra assistance otherwise. To volunteer please contact our church office and we will put you in touch with our Backpack Buddies coordinator. We need shoppers to stock the shelves, folks to pack the bags, drivers to deliver the food, friends to take our recycling, and much more. There is a job for everyone in this important local ministry!
