You might wonder how we get the food we pack each week. We would not be able to do it without a partner we have had for many years–Changing Places Moving & Services.
First, the food is supplied by the Meijer Corporation. They deliver a month worth of food to the Meijer store located in Waterford. Now we must get the food from the Meijer store to the packing location. For years, Changing Places has provided a driver and a truck each month, at no cost to the program, to go to Meijer and pick up the pallets of food for the Clarkston schools. They, then deliver the pallets to Waypoint Free Methodist Church on Dixie Highway. Volunteers are ready when Changing Places arrives to unload the truck. The cases of food are then moved into the storage room in preparation of each weeks packing.
Thank you, Changing Places, Johnna Struck and your entire team. Feeding a child is a simple thing that can be taken for granted. But, for the families served by Blessings in a Backpack, a year’s backpacks of food can be life changing. We could not do it without you.
