Thank you to David White of UALC for coming to be a special guest with the children. David said, “(It was) tremendous fun and God was on the move.The volunteer and staff team did a great job and the children were very inquisitive.Thank you for the invitation.”

Healthy Food Served with Love

I have had the wonderful opportunity to assist in feeding hungry children at snack time, which is just one of the many aspects that SON Ministries is dedicated to in the fight to alleviate suburban poverty.  Our program has been blessed with the ability to shift from a quick not super nutritious snack, to an atmosphere where children are now sitting down with one another, talking and laughing about their day, and enjoying a meal of healthy food.

Through partnerships and collaboration we are now able to provide healthier more substantial food than ever at Kids Club.

One night at Kids Club, a middle school girl expressed to me that snack time is the one moment of the day where she felt stress free. She elaborated by saying it was a brief time in her day where she wasn’t worrying and that she could enjoy without being bothered.

What a magical thing good, nutritious food can do for the soul! No child deserves to be hungry and without a source of healthy food. At Kids Club, we use snack time as a way to show these children we love them, we care about them, and we want to celebrate them!

At SON Ministries, we feed children year round – body, mind and spirit.
