Kid-friendly food helps students over weekend
FORTVILLE — Fortville Area Resource Mission and local churches pack bags of food for some Mt. Vernon students, making sure those who could use a little food to carry through the weekend have it available.
Cans of stew, jars of peanut butter, cups of instant soup or ramen noodles, packets of oatmeal, cups of diced peaches, and raisins are gathered to go in bags on Fridays. Other ideas are Spaghetti-o’s or ravioli, granola bars, jello or pudding cups, and juice or shelf-stable milk. The bags are then taken to local schools, where staff discreetly drop them into the appropriate backpacks.
Items can be dropped off anytime in the entryway of Fortville Christian Church, where FARM is housed and where volunteers from multiple churches help with the student bags and with FARM’s Tuesday food pantry hours.
