The members of Alpha Gamma, Theta State, Alabama, began the KIDZ EATZ CLUB program last year to help provide for children in Baldwin County. Under the leadership of Anne Davis, the group began with a minimal amount of funds and has partnered with churches and individuals to provide needed weekend meals, shoes, clothing, snacks, and support for more than 300 children. The ministry provided more than $10,000 worth of items last year and is continuing the program this year.
The primary focus of KIDZ EATZ CLUB is to deliver weekend bags of food for those children identified as in need by the school counselors. While substitute teaching after her official retirement as fourth-grade teacher, Anne became aware of children who could not afford school snacks and came to school hungry on Mondays. She brought her concerns to Alpha Gamma, whose members and friends eagerly joined her ministry. Each bag consists of six meals high in protein and costs about $6.00. The bag is secretly placed in the child’s backpack on Fridays. When requested, KIDZ EAT also provides other items such as shoes and socks. Anne says, “This is truly a loaves and fishes ministry. It is unbelievable how much support we have. Churches, individuals, and other organizations have been so generous already. We started with $600 and have been blessed to be able to provide more than $15,000 worth of items for our children so far. What a gift to be able to be a part of this.”
