Feed My Lambs
A weekend meal ministry for students at Walls and Lake Cormorant Elementary
What is Feed My Lambs?
A weekend meal ministry of Minor Memorial United Methodist Church that provides students in need with two breakfast items, two lunch items and four snacks while school is in session from September through May.
Currently we serve two schools: Walls Elementary and Lake Cormorant Elementary.
Teachers can testify that food scarcity is a real issue for many of our students here in DeSoto County, affecting their ability to learn. No income guidelines are required, but participants must be referred by the schools.
Minor Memorial UMC has been providing weekend meals since the 2012-2013 school year. When the program first began, we started with seven children. Over the past years we have served between 80-150 children weekly.
The benefits of this program are numerous--children are less likely to become ill. They are better focused on their school work and feel better about themselves. Families are less worried about weekend food scarcity.
Are you looking for a way to make a difference in the life of a child?
Feed My Lambs is funded completely by donations.
All of the shopping, sorting, packing and delivery is done by volunteers.
$4.00 per week will provide one weekend of food for a child.
Feed My Lambs needs your support!
