Feeding His Sheep is an outreach program
sponsored by The Salvation Army of
Washtenaw County in collaboration with
Ypsilanti Community Schools, Ypsilanti
Free Methodist Church and Food Gatherers.
Many children benefit from school meal
programs throughout the week days.
However, in these difficult economic
times, we recognize that some families
may be challenged to meet this need
over the weekend.
Our aim is to help children and their
families receive good nutrition, develop
healthy eating habits and in the process,
help them have better attendance and
academic performance.
We believe this outreach can be
a valuable tool in our childrens
scholastic achievements.
