What is F.U.E.L.?

F.U.E.L. is a food subsidization program designed to feed children whose only food source may be the food they are receiving at school. All across America children are going without food every weekend. That means for up to 67 hours each weekend school-age children are going without food. Most of these children are on state assistance however the food is not getting to the kids. YOU CAN HELP!


Non-perishable food items are gathered at church and placed into grocery style bags. The bags are delivered to the school and placed directly into the backpacks of the children. The children are selected by the schools, not based on income, but on signs of hunger. The food and funds are gathered at Madison Street, distributed by our church members to the school slected. We deliver food bags to Norman Smith Elementary School.

What do I bring?

Food donations can include small, easy-to-open  cereal boxes, fruit cups, packaged crackers, granola bars, 100% juice boxes, pop tarts and pudding cups. These items can be dropped off in the F.U.E.L. trunk just inside the Commerce Street entrance.
