“Harnessing Hunger, One Backpack
at a Time”
The Justice and
Witness Committee (Missions and Outreach) is hosting a 5K & 1K Fun Run/Walk
on June 1st as a fundraiser to benefit the Vermont Foodbank’s
Backpack Program. This nationally recognized program of Feeding America is
designed to meet the needs of hungry children at times when other resources,
like school breakfast and lunch, are not available, such as weekends and school
vacations. For more information on this program, I encourage you to visit: http://www.vtfoodbank.org/OurPrograms/YouthPrograms/BackPackProgram.aspx
The mission of the Vermont
Foodbank is to “gather and share quality food and nurture partnerships so that
no one in Vermont will go hungry”. This mission aligns with our committee’s
desire to help alleviate hunger, both locally and worldwide.
