Education and Hunger Forums
Raising awareness is one of our goals during Community:Serve. As such, we will host two forums. The first forum will focus on the issue of childhood hunger. Daisy Rodriguez of Second Harvest Food Bank and Dr. Doris Paez of Forsyth Futures will help us understand the issue and the best ways for churches to respond. The second forum will focus on the issues of education and hunger. Dr. Amber Baker of Kimberley Park Elementary School, Mrs. Constance Hash of Forest Park Elementary School, and Dr. Don Martin, superintendent of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School System, will share their micro and macro perspective on how churches can best partner with schools to address education and hunger. You won’t want to miss these forums!
Bring It In
From June 3rd through the week of Community:Serve, we will collect items that address the issue of childhood hunger. We have asked for items that can be used specifically for the Back Pack Program, which provides food for hungry children on the weekend and holidays. Food will be distributed to Second Harvest Food Bank, A Storehouse for Jesus, and several other local partners working to feed hungry children.
