THE YOUTH MINISTRY OF FRIENDSHIP MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH IS JOINING WITH FEED THE CHILDREN TO SPONSOR A TRUCKLOAD OF FOOD FOR THE COMMUNITY. DISTRIBUTION OF FOOD AND OTHER ITEMS WILL BEGIN 11 A.M. SATURDAY at the church.

During its 27-year history, Feed the Children has grown into one of the world's largest private organizations dedicated to helping those who are hungry.

The heart of Feed the Children's U.S. program is distributing food to needy families. The organization works with partners such as Friendship to help defray the cost of transporting the donations.

The church at 3300 31st St. S hopes to assist 400 children and their families on Saturday. For more information, call 906-8300.
