Backpacks For Fridays (BFF)
The BFF program provides easy-to-prepare food backpacks for children to take home on Fridays. The backpacks help children get the nutrition they need to eat during the weekends. Funding is provided by churches, local organizations, and grants.
The Abbeville BFF was started by Melba and Robert Lisenby who are members of Abbeville United Methodist Church. First Lady Connie serves as a Board member and helps plan BFF operations. AMC will provide hands-on support next week when our LYSA youth group sorts and packs the food for 40 children of the Boys and Girls Club. BFF plans to provide weekend meals for 100 children at Abbeville Elementary starting in September. This is long term community support that AMC can be involved. Please see Sis. Connie for further details regarding date/times and how you can take part.
