In This Season of Gratitude and Giving

Every Friday afternoon, a team of volunteers from the Feed The Kids Coalition serves a meal to the kids of the Boys & Girls Club of Henderson County. Five teams rotate and each team serves a different menu.

Team # 1 of the Feed The Kids Coalition consists of First Congregational, Holy Family, and St. James members. There are 98 volunteers on the roster and approximately 45 of these are actively involved.

This past year Team # 1 offered their meal 10 times at the Boys & Girls Club. The menu consists of baked penne pasta with ground beef and a vegetable-filled sauce, vegetable crudities with Ranch dressing, and seasonal fruit. We also offer a vegetarian option. The food is prepared in the St. James kitchen, transported to B & G Club, and served.

In the past 12 months, the Team # 1 FTK volunteers:

  • prepared 2,200 meals
  • served over 1,800 children
  • exceeded 604 volunteer hours

On behalf of all the kiddos and the FTK team # 1 ~ THANK YOU ~ THANK YOU ~ THANK YOU

for all the support from St. James Episcopal Church ~ Holy Family ~ First Congregational Church

Gratefully, Carole Haskell & Patti Brotherton, Team #1 Co-leaders
