Feed Hungry Kids

Decatur First and Action Ministries are working together to feed kids over spring break who count on free or reduced priced lunches at school. We will pack lunches in the DFUMC Fellowship Hall from 6-7pm March 31 - April 4. We also need volunteers each weekday morning that week to deliver the sandwiches. This is a very kid-friendly project, but be aware we will be making sandwiches using peanut butter. Click HERE to sign-up.
