City Church is continuing their history of helping the community with their annual summer food program and other initiatives to help low-income families in the community.
Every summer, different youth groups from across the country join local volunteers at City Church to deliver a homemade lunches to kids in neighborhoods around Amarillo. The senior Pastor of the church says there’s more than enough food to make sure every kid has enough food to supply a hot item, fresh food, cookies, even fresh popcorn. Usually the program feeds around 1,500 to 2,000 kids a day. But last year, due to the pandemic, fewer volunteers resulted in fewer children being reached. The feeding program runs from June 14 until August 1.
City Church is now asking the community to help with monetary donations or by volunteering their time to help deliver the meals.
