“When you talk about children who are hungry … that’s a sore spot for everybody. I think it worked because we had this partnership with everybody.”Margaret Skulnik
The Congregations for Children (C4C) committee at First UMC in Graham worked with the nutritionists at Alamance County Schools to procure and set up a food truck. First UMC partnered with other faith communities in the area to raise the funds, purchase the truck, and get it set up and ready to serve.
The original idea was to feed children in the summer months when access to free and reduced lunch was not available. The truck is now being used to feed students who are learning virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Margaret Skulnik, who chairs the C4C committee, and Rev. Claire Clyburn, the pastor of First UMC, share how the partnership with Alamance County Schools came about and how this ministry has impacted both the community and the church.
