Knox Area Ministerium Food Program is Helping Local Students


The Knox Area Ministerium has embarked on a “Bag of Food” campaign for the youth in the Keystone School District. The campaign is held every Tuesday from 10 AM until Noon at the 512 Main Street location. This ministry is very similar to the back pack ministry that is held on the weekends during the school year. However, with the schools being closed it was decided to hold the “Bag of Food” distribution on Tuesdays, because the Keystone Elementary school is serving breakfast and lunch at the school every Tuesday and Friday. And the school is giving out pre-packed food for the students that supplements the meals they eat at the school. Since families are already out at the school, the ministerium figured it would be easy for them to stop by 512 Main and pick-up their “Bag of Food”. (Pictured above) According to Rev. Brian Houser of the Knox Ministerium, “Each of the bags has single serving type packages such as, cereal, mac & cheese, granola bars and snacks.” Rev. Houser added, “The food distribution is primarily for any child in the Keystone School District who needs it.” He went on to thank all those who have helped by giving their time, financially and with food items. He also thanked the Knox Area Ministerium and Ron Best for the use of his building at 512 Main for the distribution point. If anyone has questions about the food program can call Rev. Brian Houser at 724-689-3412.
