Chapter grant helps local students who rely on school lunches

A $3,500 Everence Financial® chapter grant is supporting a program that gives local students food to take home on weekends.

Zion Mennonite Church launched the Bean Bag Food Program in 2016 to offer a steady supply of food for students who rely on school lunches. The program has grown to serve students at 10 schools.

Everence Stewardship Consultant Randy Nyce presents a check to Donna Halteman, founder and coordinator of the Bean Bag Food Program.

The Everence chapter grant program supports organizations that help people with basic needs such as food, housing and health care. The grants are made possible when members purchase many Everence products.

“We’re happy to encourage a program that we know is so important to many local families,” said Randy Delp, Managing Director for Everence in Souderton.

Anyone interested in helping to provide meals for kids to take home may contact Zion Mennonite Church, 149 Cherry Lane, Souderton, PA 18964. Please make checks out to Zion Mennonite Church with memo: BBFP.
