If you look around, you might start seeing signs around your neighborhood for “FreeFoodforKids.com.”
I did and checked them out online. I then learned that this is a new program sponsored by a local church called Creative Church. Creative Church partnered with other area churches to provide free food for kids, and anyone can pick up the food. No questions asked. No registration or ID needed. Just show up and pick it up!
I went to the Coon Rapids location today and talked with Pastor Brandon Fleeman at North Point Church, which was the pickup site for today. He was a delight to talk with, and explained how it works. They have locations right now from Mondays to Saturdays every week. There’s a different location each day around the Twin Cities metro area, and at each location during the designated date and time, the food is outside in a truck, ready to be given out in bags by volunteers.
