We have recently begun a “Feed the Kids” ministry in partnership with Iglesia Sinai Bautista and Friendship Baptist Church as well as with Central Baptist Association. We have been providing weekend food bags for hungry children at both Armijo and Atrisco Elementary Schools in our neighborhood.
In nine weeks we have distributed 2800 meals through this program, and so far we have had enough workers and those giving to finance this effort through the end of this school year. It is our desire to expand this program in the new school year by either increasing the number of food bags for each school, adding another school, or both.
In order to do this we will need more people to be involved in prayer, giving, and packing food bags. During the Summer we will continue to solicit and accept contributions in order to finance this project.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Pastor Jerry Minor at Riverside Baptist Church.
