Food for Thought

A  Mission of Grace United Methodist Church
Providing weekend food for children at Zaragosa

Many of the children at Zaragosa rely on the meals provided at school during the week.  When the weekend arrives, they go home and have limited food, often going hungry until Monday.  During the holidays, the school is closed, leaving many of the children hungry.  Grace United Methodist Church is gathering food for students to take home with them on the weekend and over the holidays.
