At FUMC, our church family works alongside our community to provide Weekend Food Bags to local elementary students who have been diagnosed as chronically hungry.
Food is stored and packed on church property and then transported weekly to the local schools for distribution during the school year. It is an honor to serve our youngest community members and assist with eliminating food insecurity. This ministry is funded by the generous donations of our church family and Jupiter community members.
2022-2023 School Year Goal = 175
1 Student x 36 Weeks = $252
Total Goal = $44,100
