Easter Outreach 2018

Family Meals, Inc. is getting ready for their  Easter Outreach 2018 and we need your help.  We will deliver meal ingredient food bags on Saturday, March 24  beginning at 7:00 in the morning at Trinity Lutheran Church (trinitychurch4u.com)  Fellowship Hall. We need lots of help.

If you are available to help unpack, pack, set up the distribution room at the church, sort potatoes, and help wherever needed either Friday, March 23  beginning at 1:00 and/or Saturday, March 24 beginning at 7:00 until noon, please sign up here:  https://www.volunteersignup.org/YC3DE

If you want to deliver our meal bags to families, please let us know by emailing

familymealsdrivers@gmail.com. You need a driver’s license and current auto insurance and will be asked to provide a copy of both. You also need a partner to help you. We never ask you to deliver to an area you feel unsafe. It is against our policy to deliver to anyone you know .

Statistics show children of families who share family meals have better grades, higher self-esteem, lower substance abuse, lower risk of depression, lower risk of eating disorders, lower rates of obesity and have a sense of belonging.  Simply sharing a family meal is the “magic bullet” families are looking for!

Family Meals’ volunteers are committed to showing families the importance of sharing a family meal. Family Meals, inc is not a food handout or a food pantry organization. Family Meals, Inc. is a 100% volunteer nonprofit, with no paid staff. If you can help us make a difference in our community, please let us know. We need you and encourage your suggestions and concerns.

This past Thanksgiving 2017 Family Meals, Inc. helped over 2,000+ families along the Treasure Coast! Family Meals, Inc.  was launched in 2012. In 2012 we helped 20 families. We’re humbled by your support.

Many local businesses are hosting food drives to help us off-set our food expenses. Please check our facebook page for additional  locations or look for our food drive signs and donate generously.    www.facebook.com/events/175658403211849
