This past Saturday our team served with a food pantry called Meals by Grace at Grace Chapel Church. Meals by Grace began when the founders heard that Forsyth County has one of the highest levels of families in extreme poverty. Many do not have reliable transportation, and every night thousands of children and families go to bed hungry. They said “Not on our watch!”. Their mission is to assist struggling families in Forsyth County by supporting them in their desire to provide healthy nutritious meals for their families who are currently unable to do so. They do just that by packing “Bags of Love” with food donations from the community. So that’s where we come in! We spent a few hours sorting food and assembling the bags of love. It was such a fun experience to bond with the team and great preparation for our mission trip!
