Prior to the pandemic, volunteers from Prince of Peace put food into student backpacks at Central Park Elementary School on Fridays (or the last day of the school week).  Every Meal (formerly known as Sheridan’s Story) provides this food to schools across the metro area.  These are for students who receive free and reduced meals at school but may not have much to eat on the weekends.  Volunteers come in on Friday mornings and discretely place the food into student backpacks. 

With in-person school resuming, the Every Meal program will begin again the end of September.  We are looking for volunteers who would like to participate.  Each shift includes 2-4 volunteers and takes about 90 minutes.  Please contact Pastor Betsy ( if you are interested in volunteering.
