Feed the Shores was established by The Woods Church in February 2019 for the children attending schools within the St. Clair Shores School Districts. The Woods Church meets as a campus on Sunday mornings at Avalon Elementary, within the South Lake School District. Through our involvement with the school, we saw a clear need for nutritious meals to be provided for children on the weekend.
This is just one of several elementary schools where 100% of the children qualify for Free Lunch. At the start of the 2020-2021 school year we are providing backpacks for one hundred children in one elementary school but over 1,000 children would qualify for the program just in the South Lake School system alone. Our mission is to provide food stability to those who would otherwise go hungry in the three St. Clair Shores school districts. We expanded the program for the 2020/2021 school year by meeting the need at Avalon and beginning the program at a second elementary school, Elmwood Elementary.
Save the Date – On Thursday, December 9, 2021, Blessings in a Backpack-Feed the Shores hosted a Ladies’ Christmas Dinner. This gave visitors an evening out to recharge and soak up all the holiday spirit they needed to share with families and friends. Read More…
