Advent Lutheran Church is partnering with Osseo Senior High to provide a backpack program to the students. This is an amazing, ongoing outreach within our community for students who are facing food instability on the weekends and over holiday breaks. Each week this program supplies backpacks with non-perishable, easy to prepare food items. The students take home a backpack full of food on Friday after school and bring it back empty Monday morning. There are students in our community who are either homeless or do not know where or when their next meal is coming. Click on this link to watch volunteers in action, produced by local news Channel 12.
