"You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing." Psalm 145:16
Hand2Hand Ministries is a resource for children facing hunger over the weekend. Healthy food is provided for these children, so they have a greater opportunity to succeed academically, emotionally, and physically. This is done by simply placing a backpack with food in the child's locker for them to take home on Fridays. Students are responsible for returning the empty backpack to their lockers on Monday morning so they can be collected and packed for redistribution on Friday.
Hand2Hand Ministries is supported through individual donations from members of the congregation at Fellowship Reformed Church, various groups and businesses within the community and "Hungry for Christ Food Ministry," located in Hamilton. Food items that are included in Hand2Hand backpacks should be child friendly, nonperishable, and preferably vitamin fortified (boxed or canned food, granola bars, juice boxes, cheese and crackers, cereal, etc.). It is important to note that Hand2Hand is not meant to feed a family for the entire weekend, but is meant to provide supplemental food.
