Feed the Kids
Common Ground Network
During the summer months—
Common Ground Network raises money with community donations to supply a week's worth of healthy snacks and meals for children in the Mansfield ISD free and reduced lunch program.
Established in 2007, Feed the Kids provided 2,000 bags for the entire summer. This year they are raising money in order to distribute nearly 10,000 bags! They also distribute free books for the reading program.
Common Ground will feed about 1,000 kids per week at food pantries across the school district over the summer months. In 2012, they added the Texas Summer Reading Program that encourages children to keep up their reading by picking out free books and earning prizes for reading each week.
Thanks for your generosity this past fall— we were able to launch a new program that allows us to feed the same kids on the weekends during the school months.
Please make checks payable to First Methodist Church and put "Feed the Kids" in the memo area.
