Messiah has been invited to participate in the Healthy Kids Summer Lunch Program. We will need at least one driver and one or two helpers Monday – Friday June 8 through August 7. If you can help please contact Pastor Franz or Darrell Mohr (817-694-8307) as soon as possible.
Healthy Kids Summer Lunch Program is a collaboration between Weatherford ISD and the community of Weatherford The congregations currently involved include First United Methodist Church in Weatherford, North Side Baptist Church, First Baptist Church Horseshoe Bend, New River, and Grace First Presbyterian Church. Weatherford Parks & Recreation Department is also very supportive of the program. They are providing the use of their parks, signs for their locations, and other support.
The program is fully funded by a grant from the Texas Department of Agriculture. Hot meals will be prepared at Curtis Elementary every day, Monday – Friday. Volunteers from the community pick up those meals in coolers, deliver them to their site, and pass the meals out to each kid there. Any kid age 18 and under is eligible for a meal. There is no registration or income check. Every kid there can eat. The volunteers only take a tally of the number of meals fed
