Smart Sacks

Smart Sacks is a program to provide food for elementary school children in the community. Each week Hughes UMC delivers food to Weller Road Elementary School that is given to needy children who receive their breakfast and lunch at the school during the week. The Smart Sacks contain food for the children to eat over the weekend.

Volunteers from Hughes pick up food from Manna Food Center every two weeks, repack the food for each child in a "Smart Sack," and then deliver the sacks to the school each week so that the children can take them home on Friday.
