Weekend Food Needs for our school Children met through – Totes for Hope

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

For half a year, we have been having meetings to help develop a program and volunteer team and funding for weekend food needs for the students at Eiber Elementary that are food insecure. That is a fancy term for HUNGRY.  The public school system has a federal nutrition program and Title One schools who have a majority of students on free and reduced lunch meet part of the food security needs of these school children.

Children can have a school breakfast, a school lunch, an after school snack and summer food service, but weekends are not covered under any government program by the federal agencies.

Reaching children during out of school times in regards to nutrition needs do not fit into the on site model of being at school.

I like to keep a heart mind set of not blaming but hoping that together one by one we can as community members get to help one another.

Totes of Hope®

Totes of Hope® was created in 2006 to assist children with nutritious, kid-friendly food to sustain them over the weekend when school is not in session. Every Friday, children take home a tote filled with 8-9 pounds of nutritious food items to feed them and their families. For many of these children, the totes are their main source of food on Saturday and Sunday. There is no fee assessed to the member agency for participation in this program.

 

Here are some statistics:

When a child does not have access to regular meals and is uncertain of when they may eat again they are experiencing the epidemic known as “chronic childhood hunger.” Families that cannot afford food or do not have regular access to food are considered “food insecure.”

The number of children living in households that were food insecure at some point during the year has grown 61 percent in Colorado since 2001-2003, to approximately 234,000 children by 2006- 2008, or 20 percent of all Colorado kids. This percentage has recently surpassed the national rate of 19 percent.Kids experiencing chronic hunger may not only suffer from poor health, they can also be denied the opportunity to reach their academic, athletic and social potential. Chronically hungry students may have the following issues in the classroom:

  • Lack of concentration
  • Lethargy or general fatigue
  • Stomachaches
  • Headaches
  • Irritability or mood swings
  • Disciplinary problems
  • Increased aggression

Recent studies from the American Academy of Pediatrics have shown that the effects of chronic childhood hunger can last a lifetime. Not knowing when they may have another meal can cause both anxiety and depression.

Hunger and Poverty in our Community

Hunger and poverty go hand in hand, which is why it is useful to use poverty statistics as a base for hunger statistics.

Chronic childhood hunger exists both above and below the poverty line, as the Federal guidelines for poverty are considered out of date.

  • To be considered 100% of poverty, a family of four must earn less than $23,050 per year.
  • To be eligible for reduced lunch, a family must be at 130% of the federal poverty line or earn less than $40,793 per year.
  • To be eligible for free lunch, a family must earn less than 185% of the federal poverty line or $28,665 per year.

In Colorado, 17% of kids live in poverty

The number of children in poverty has more than doubled since 2000 and the number of children living in extreme poverty (approximately $11,000 for a family of four) has increased 150 percent.

While the childhood poverty rate in Colorado currently remains below the national average, between 2000 and 2009 the number of children living in poverty in Colorado more than doubled, rising faster than any other state in the nation.

School Meal Programs

In Colorado, there has been a steady increase in the number of children participating in the School Breakfast Program. The U.S. increased four percent in the number of children served by the free breakfast program since 2008, while the number of Colorado children increased more than twice as fast with a nine percent increase over the same period.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, more than 54,000 additional children participated in the National School Lunch Program in Colorado in 2009 than in 2005.

In Jefferson County, there are over 27,000 children who are eligible for free and or reduced lunch programs. Here in Golden, there are over 1,100 children eligible.

Approach God to Listen and not to speak in 2017 – 15 minute teaching -airs five times this week

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
Approaching God to listen and not speak as an act of obedience and a discipline will shift you more into the presence of God. Over the years, I have helped hundreds of people come closer with God to the greatest joy of their lives.

 

Approaching God to listen and not speak is what Jesus was telling those grumpy Pharisees when they said hey Jesus what is the greatest commandment.  Jesus said boldly…to be in love with me …

Approaching God to listen and not speak will help you along in consenting to receive the fullness of Gods love for you and your family.

Wilkins Radio

Like the dawn of a new morning we will begin to realize that God really does want to spend time with us. Time as his son or daughter or friend. Time to BE together not to talk about doing stuff.

Better than our best friend is the one who wants us to dwell with God, to abide with God to be still with God…to tarry with God… lets decide to obediently declare to God that with your grace I decide to lean in closer to you because I can. To go deeper in my relationship with you.  To learn to approach you not like an orphan but like royalty… after all God you did tell us we are a royal priesthood… priestly people love to dwell in the smoke of Gods glory…

Does this sound scary or impossible ?  Are you suffering from unbelief and hope deferred in the love relationship you have with God… take some baby steps or a few bold obedient steps this month.

Carve out in your calendar time for the one who deeply desires You.  Learn to approach God and say I no longer want to live ALONE… I am sick and tired of feeling alone…

I watched a show on the history channel with my daughter Kaitlin and her husband Jeff a few days ago and it is a survivor show called ALONE… they drop one person in one place and drop about 15 single people in a semi artic place in south America to survive…of course there is a  500 k prize…. The one guy we saw lasted two days…. He was going crazy being alone because his mind would not shut off from worrying about his wife and three children they were going to soon adopt…he was so ashamed he could not handle being alone…. Of course I thought right away…how sad he was not alone he just thought he was alone…he got air lifted or boat lifted from the aloneness…

We can approach God and learn while being silent and listening why we are not alone and who we get to spend time with who loves us much more than anyone knows…love just waiting for us…so how we approach God is :

  1. How do you see yourself ?  we will look at in the coming weeks the battlefield of our mind. The power of words we speak about ourselves…those hidden almost subconscious beliefs about ourselves that block out at this threshold or throne of grace what God is saying to us and to be able to see who we truly are. Silence before God to listen and not speak with unlock and unearth the truth of our very self our very identity that has often been stolen
  2. Practice and obedience must come into play to receive this new fresh relationship with God. Coming to God to listen will manifest Gods very presence…on you and to you and in you…yes you
  3. Gods presence manifests or arises in silence. You will become comfortable with hearing nothing because actually silence has sounds… the tangible presence of God has substance… God can speak to our spirit with His presence…  we all must must must learn this and live this to mature and flourish

 

 

Some books that can help you in this adventure or spiritual journey with God will be listed on our website… good counsel can be to find a friend to walk this out with or even a counselor…

 

When rebuilding the community and wall in time of Nehemiah they were busy building but they got restored big time in Nehemiah 8:5-6 when the very presence of God caused them all to fall at Gods feet on their face.  Face time with God still works and is highly transforming and healing.

 

In my book lean in closer with God I share about my journey to Hear God speak to me and my journey of being literally FAINT WITH LOVE with God.  Jesus and the Holy Spirit came so close that every cell in my being was pulsing with the love of God… it is hard to explain but true…it is biblical

 

Lets look at a book I have taught from and used in my maturing and for my character development and life with God

 

Listening Prayer by Leanne Payne.  Baker books is publisher. Lets see what Dallas Willard had to say about this resource:

 

 

Approaching God for communion with Him instead of a begging or defeated experience will raise us from the dead.  Is the bible true… and we all said YES IT IS…so it is true and true right now that the promise of John 17:22-23a is ours.  We must be obedient and take it by faith which has a substance.

 

You get to take this promise from where the throne of grace  not the throne of rejection of a busy signal or throne of ignore me because I have been bad

 

Please here what I am going to say right now …hear this with your spirit not your brain…the whole point of pondering our approach to God is this:

 

Intellectual blocks and spiritual blocks will dissolve in this listening posture and life with God

 

When we begin to very intentionally and obedientiary chose to PRACTICE THE PRESENCE OF GOD we enter into the place we belong…we get back to the garden….
