Many of our families in Anchorage do not have enough money to buy food for their families.
The Children’s Lunchbox is stepping up to make sure no child goes hungry in Anchorage by providing Food Pantry Boxes for these families. A Food Pantry Box is a shoe box filled with food items that will make a meal for a family of four. Click here to see the menus, food items needed, and directions for assembling the Food Pantry Boxes. Boxes can be brought to the church through Sunday, Dec. 20.
