A huge thank you goes out to all of our incredible supporters and donors! Our annual valentines giveaway was a big success. We were able to provide new, unwrapped boxes of valentines to over 300 children so that they may have valentines to give to their classmates and participate in all of the fun school Valentine's Day activities!
Tn Food on Foot was founded as a Christian-based nonprofit organization that began providing nutritious food bags to the hungry and homeless in Morristown to help underprivileged children. Although it originally began as a children's ministry, God has grown it into an organization that now provides over 1200 food bags per month for both children and adults in the Lakeway area and surrounding counties. In addition, nearly 870 food bags are distributed to local elementary and middle schools each week who have needy children. Over 185 toiletry bags are given out each month as well as school supplies and backpacks. In 2015, over 1700 backpacks loaded with supplies were handed out to local children in need. Food on Foot also distributes special religious holiday items. This past Easter, they distributed 750 Easter baskets filled with goodies and each one included a bible that was donated by Lifeway Christian Store. At Christmas, they handed out almost 1000 new toys and 1000 pairs of new pajamas to children that otherwise might have had nothing, along with new coats and brand new bikes!!! Food on Foot's hope for the future is that NO child will go hungry.
*During the Summer months, Food on Foot will continue to distribute food bags on Saturday mornings at 11:30am, but will also be supplying food bags on Wednesday mornings as well.
We are so very thankful for our many supporters who make everything we do possible. Blessings to you all.
