Free weekend food program benefits needy Baker students

Published: Wednesday, August 14, 2013 at 10:40 AM.

On Sunday, Aug. 25, beginning at noon, the church will have a benefit lunch with carryout meals.

The church is also raising funds with craft nights for families. The next event, to focus on scrapbooking, is 6 p.m. Sept. 7 at Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church. Admission is $10 per person. All funds raised will go toward purchasing items from a Milton food bank, Lawson said.

The Wednesday night Girls in Action church class, headed by Lawson, will bag meals for volunteers to distribute on Thursdays.

Helping others teaches kids an important lesson, she said.

"Our children are very instrumental in helping with this program," Arias said. "(The program) is really good about teaching them about poverty and giving back to the community."
