DLS Backpack Food Program

This is an amazing, ongoing outreach within our church community for students who face food insecurity on the weekends and over holiday breaks. 

Each week this program supplies "backpacks" of non-perishable, easy to prepare food items. The students take home a plastic bag full of food on Friday after school.

How can you get involved? 

 Pray for DLS, for the students and families that receive this ministry.
