Backpack Ministry Uses Pumpkins to Feed Children

Forrest Hills United Methodist Church in Macon is busy filling up bags for children, but it has nothing to do with trick or treating. They’re focused on filling book bags instead. Brenda Lambert is kind of like a trick or treater in reverse. Every week, Brenda and her team fill book bags with food, to make sure that over the weekend when school is out, children in need still have enough to eat.

“They have enough for both breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday and then at least if they need one or two meals, they’ve got protein, they’ve got fruit, they have a drink,” says Brenda Lambert, coordinator of the Backpack Ministry.
