Hand2Hand exists because a hungry child hurts and the weekend is a vulnerable time for any child facing food insecurity. Their mission is to eliminate local childhood hunger - one child at a time. Bethel partners with ZQuest Elementary School & Eaglecrest Academy and provides backpacks filled with nutritious food. If you would like to donate food for this ministry, please look for the post it notes of the needed food items by the information center at church. If you would like to help pack the food, Hand2Hand packing night is at 7:00pm every 4th Wednesday of the month.
