First Presbyterian Allen

Boyd Summer Lunch Program 

The churches of Allen together to help the students and families that live near Boyd Elementary have a healthy lunch during the summer months. The ministry was started through the Allen Ministerial Alliance. Through this ministry the churches provide lunch for the families along with crafts, games, and fellowship. Boyd Elementary has 80% of their students on free or reduced lunches. These families would struggle during the summer months to provide nutritious meals for their children. The program also provides a way for churches to reach out to this community and provide the children with fun activities and events the can look forward to throughout the summer. Each of the churches who participate chose a week in the summer to have a wonderful and rewarding time playing and eating with the families.
