Kids Eat Free!
Kids Eat Free (KEF) is a summer only ministry (June-August) that serves lunches to children who normally receive government subsidized lunches during the school year. CCA (Christian Community in Action) heads this program and asks local churches to "adopt" a community where these children live. St. Ann's has "adopted" the Golden Triangle Mobile Home Park (on S. Coppell Rd. across from Wilson Elementary in Coppell). We meet in the kitchen across from the Assembly Room Monday-Friday starting on June 6-August 19 at 10:45 am. We fill paper lunch bags with a sandwich, a sweet snack, a salty snack, fruit and a drink. The sandwiches are then delivered to the site between 11:15-11:30 am. If you would like to volunteer either as a weekly leader or to assist, please go to the main page (home) and look for a picture of a boy carrying a paper sack. Click on either the "Kids Eat Free Daily Volunteer" or the 2nd link "Kids Eat Free Weekly Leader Volunteer". You will be directed to a volunteer sign up sheet. Please place the name of each person volunteering in a slot. This is a family ministry, so we encourage you to bring your children/grandchildren of all ages to help us. This is a great way for them to learn how to serve others. Also if you need volunteer hours or are a scout, we would love your help. If you have any questions, please contact SUE GRADY 972-467-0803 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Being a "Weekly Leader" is easy! First of all, you must be able to drive. As the leader you need to be in the kitchen at 10:30. Once the volunteers arrive lead the group in prayer before everyone starts. Always make sure there is a job for everyone who comes to help and pitch in when needed. After the lunches have been made you take them to the Golden Triangle trailer park. As a leader you would need to be sure that the kitchen is clean and anyl trash is taken to the dumpster.
