Food 4 Kids

Food 4 Kids is an outreach ministry of the Church of the Holy Spirit. This program began in 2013 and continues as a partnership between the church, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and other faith-based and community agencies. F4K addresses the hidden need to address childhood hunger on the lower/outer Cape. One in three children on Cape Cod is food-insecure, especially in the summertime when there are no school lunches.

In 2017 we will serve over 33,000 meals (breakfasts, lunches, and snacks) to children in all eight towns of the lower/outer Cape. Through grants, we will give away 2,500 new children’s books all summer at our meal sites. Over 100 volunteers of all ages help to feed the children — including assembling sandwiches in the kitchen, packing the coolers and delivering them to the fourteen sites, and distributing the meals to the children.

MAY UPDATE – Food 4 Kids has launched their annual drive for volunteers. Sign-up sheets are posted in the Reception Room/Gallery, which is open Monday – Thursday from 9:00 – 3:00. New this year is the ability to sign up online. Thank you for your continued support.
