Polk County Summer Food Program
“Feed-A-Kid”

Special Offering for Feed-A-Kid Summer Food Program 

Sunday, May 12th

Please plan to make a special donation to support Tryon UMC’s commitment to contribute $1,500 toward providing packages of food each week during the summer for children and families in Polk County.  This year we estimate providing packages to about 200 children.  Sisters in Service will contribute $500 toward this effort.  The congregation is asked to contribute the remaining $1,000.  Please consider that gift on Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 12th. 

 

This program is a partnership between Outreach and area churches in Polk County that seeks to provide nutritional food and easy to make meals to children and families who may be in need during the months when school is not in session. 

Polk County Summer Food Program is driven by the values of service, true generosity, and the desire to eliminate hunger and food insecurity in Polk County.

The Lead Church for 2024 is Tryon First Baptist Church. The program will provide food between June 3 – August 9, 2024. Our goal this year is to serve 200 children.
