Weekend Food Program

Filling the weekend gap with food and a full heart for our local Jupiter children.

This program is designed to address chronic hunger among elementary-age children in public schools. It provides nutritious food to children who might not otherwise have adequate food over the weekend. Each food bag contains child-friendly, nutritious, shelf stable food items for an average of two days (weekends).

Our church has been partnering with FIRST United Methodist Church to provide weekend food bags to food insecure children at Jupiter Elementary for over 5 years.   This program is currently serving 172 children weekly. However, the funding has been discontinued, so we have committed to raising the funds necessary to continue feeding local hungry children for the 2019-2020 school year.  Our goal is to serve 200 children (our church family being responsible for 100 of those) while expanding to two additional elementary schools. 

It costs $7.25 per child for one weekend food bag totaling $261.00 for the 36 weeks. Please prayerfully consider sponsoring a child for the school year.

On the FIRST and THIRD Friday of the Palm Beach County School Year, volunteers of JupiterFIRST assemble, deliver and distribute food bags to the children of select local elementary schools. If you want to participate in this important ministry contact the church, or Ron Long, JFC Coordinator.
