Local church, community come together to fight hunger in pilot program
Members at FBC got together this fall to discuss a community-wide outreach program. When they found out that 76% of the San Marcos school district was in poverty, they knew what they wanted to do.
Aurelia Newton said that kids go home and don’t eat on the weekends. School Fuel is a pilot program at Mendez Elementary and 30 students go home with sack lunches every Friday.
