Recipient: Elkridge Food Pantry and Garden   Initiative: Food4Friends

I took my two Sunday School students, Simon and Suzy, to Walmart where they helped me select food items from the list provided by a food bank located near our ecclesia hall.  Once we had purchased the items using the grant from Garden Outreach, we drove over to the food bank and dropped them off.  On the way we talked about why should try to provide food for those who are hungry.  The volunteers at the food bank were very appreciative of our donation.  They explained to the children that they typically provide food bags for about 150 people on the two days a month when they are open.
