On Wednesday, September 26, from 4 to 7 p.m. the North Church Mission Committee will sponsor a Chiavetta’s chicken BBQ dinner to benefit the Back Pack Program of the Food Bank of Western New York. For only $10 you will receive a half chicken BBQ with Chiavetta’s exclusive sauce, potato salad, coleslaw, roll, and dessert (cookies or brownies). We offer a drive-thru service as well as an eating-in option.
How you can help:
- Buy tickets for your family (if you cannot attend consider donating the cost of your dinner) and tell your friends.
- Bake cookies or brownies. (We are limiting desert to these two items because of the drive through option.)
- Volunteer to help us for an hour that night.
- Share this event on your social media outlets.
Stop into the church office to buy tickets M-Th. 8am-3:30pm or Friday 8am-noon.
Facts about childhood hunger in our area:
One out of five children in the four-county area served by the Food Bank of WNY struggles with hunger. Many of these children benefit from free or reduced cost school meals, but on the weekends and school holidays they are left without an adequate supply of food. The BackPack Program assists these students by providing easily prepared, child-friendly, nutritious food in take-home bags each Friday throughout the school year. The program is offered to elementary schools in which at least 50% of the students are eligible for free school lunch. The BackPack Program currently serves more than 2,900 students in 48 elementary schools.
