Children from Nolley Memorial United Methodist Church in Jena delivered food donations to The Little Free Food Pantry located in the front of The Jena Times office last week. This has become an ongoing project that they began several years ago when they bought a birthday gift for Jesus with their Christmas offerings. The birthday gift they thought Jesus would like best was food for hungry people. They have been able to continue to provide food donations because they asked adults to help them raise funds. They have continued their tradition of placing Bible verse labels on each food item and labels that tell the items are provided by the children of Nolley. They continue to enjoy these Sunday School field trips to deliver their gifts. Once they arrange all the food in the cabinet, one of the children leads in prayer to bless the food and the people with whom they are sharing. The children wish to thank all who gave offerings to help show God’s love to others. They encourage everyone to help provide food to keep The Pantry filled.
