Volunteers gathered at North Terrace Church this afternoon to help prepare meals for local students.
Generosity feeds paired with the Zanesville community to prepare almost 25 thousand meals of which will be distributed to teachers and counselors in local schools who will pass them out to students on Fridays before they head home for the weekend.
“We’re excited to host an event like this where not only church people but the community of Zanesville could gather together and say ‘if there are people who are hungry, especially kids at schools like West Muskingum, Zane Grey, McIntire, we wanted to say what can we do?’ and generosity feeds had the answer for that” said Connections Minister Chris Steele.
A real concern was brought to the surface when student’s only meals eaten were while they were at school so the community wanted to do something to help so what better way than to provide students with meals that won’t expire.
President of Generosity Feeds, Ron Kiabunde said…
“Today is a community wide collaborative effort to stamp out hunger right here in Zanesville and so there are about 450 people here today who really live the value of service and generosity.”
Steele said a boy scouts team even came out and helped last night with set up.
