The School Backpack Ministry is an outreach targeting students in need of supplemental food for the weekend serving over 130 children in two schools in our community (Farragut Primary School and Farragut Intermediate School).
Food for the backpacks is packaged by Compassion Ministries and delivered to the schools by local volunteers. The supplemental food is placed inconspicuously in student backpacks on Friday each week of the school year. The cost is $60 per student per year.
Southeast Bank of Farragut is completely sponsoring this ministry!
This ministry provides us with a platform on which to interact face to face with families of these students at Thanksgiving and Christmas. During the holiday season Compassion Ministries provides food baskets for these families who come to the church to pick up their baskets. There we have the opportunity to share not only food but encouragement through the Word of God and prayer.
In the course of a year Compassion Ministries will prepare and share over 5,000 backpacks of food all in the name of Jesus Christ.
