Kingdom Expression – Serving Asheville Region

Jesus said that those who come to Him will flow rivers of living water. While remaining connected to God, we find practical ways to be a source of life and refreshing to those around us.

Weekend Backpack Ministry

Rugby Middle School is in need of food items immediately for their weekend backpacks. All items should be individually packaged; they should be easy to open by kids and require little or no preparation.

Appropriate items include:

  • Soups in pop-top cans
  • Beanie Weenies
  • Chef Boyardee products
  • Vienna Sausage
  • Fruit Cups/Applesauce
  • Snack Crackers
  • Snack Bars (granola, fruit and nut, cereal, etc.)
  • Macaroni and Cheese (in microwavable bowls)
  • Oatmeal or Grits (individual packets)

These bags are given to the students on Friday and maybe the only food they have over the weekend until they return to school. They are delivered to Rugby Middle School on Thursday afternoons so remember to bring your items to the Information Center.
