Just before dinnertime rolls around, you may hear some variation of the following lament: “I’m SOOOO hungry!” But what if your kids were really, truly hungry? What if you couldn’t afford to give them the nutritious food they need? This scenario is reality for one child out of every four in our area. It’s difficult to imagine that children living right around the corner may go to bed hungry, but chances are your child may know someone at school who faces food insecurity.
Here’s the thing: they don’t have to. We can help.
Hunger doesn't take the weekend off. You might find surprising that some students at Huggins Elementary School are not guaranteed a healthy meal outside of school. These kids, who live in our community, come to school hungry and worry about not having enough to eat at night, on weekends, and on holidays.
FaithFULL Kids is a community organization born out of the love of Christian hearts from Faith United Methodist Church, First United Methodist Church Fulshear, and WordServe Church. Our mission is to transform the community by providing nutritious meals to families of food-insecure school-aged children on weekends and holidays, and to provide serving opportunities that will guide people to grow as joyful servants of Jesus. We hope that our work will not only improve the lives of the children being served, but also bring glory to God.
FaithFULL Kids volunteers fill snack bags with nonperishable food items at our Packing Parties. The snack bags are sent home with FaithFULL Kids participants to supplement their nutrition over the weekend or holiday.
Everyone needs food to survive, but we especially need nutritious food in order to thrive. A child cannot perform well in school if they are hungry. In fact, hunger has many negative implications for students, including impeded growth and development, increased risk of illness, poor mental health and concentration, increased hospitalization, impaired cognitive function and capacity to learn, as well as lower test scores and overall school performance. If the basic need for food isn’t met, children enter into a vicious cycle that becomes increasingly harder to break out of as they age. FaithFULL Kids gives us the opportunity to make a BIG difference in the lives of children and families in our community.
Can I really make a difference?
Of course! Everyone can make a difference. From toddlers to senior citizens, FaithFULL Kids can use you just as you are. FaithFULL Kids is a great opportunity for families to serve together, too! Join us for a packing party, or if Sundays don’t work for you, sign up to deliver, donate, shop, or pray. One hour of your time, or $1 from your pocket, can change a life forever.
