Noel Backpack Ministry

Roaring Fork Baptist Church has committed to providing meals for bus riders on Sunday morning, Wednesday evening and one Sunday lunch per month. The need is greater than these limited opportunities. Our goal is to provide a backpack of staples on Wednesday evening to bridge the gap until Sunday.

Nutritious, nonperishable food items are stored at the church, allowing volunteers to meet each Wednesday to assemble the backpack contents. On Wednesday evening, the backpacks are distributed to the designated bus driver. To be as discreet as possible, we place the food on the bus while they participate in activities.

How Can You Help?

It takes the partnership and dedication of many volunteers to provide, assemble, and deliver the amount of food necessary to feed the growing number of children each week. We invite you to join the Bus Backpack Ministry in this mission in one or more of the following ways:
