A Full Summer 2024

Have you ever seen a problem and felt like someone should do something about it?  Well, when it was discovered that 1 in 5 children in Leon County struggles with food insecurity, an initiative was submitted to St. John’s Strategic Planning Visioning Day in 2012 and A FULL SUMMER was born!

A FULL SUMMER’s mission is to help local food insecure children.  What started as a meal assembly in Alfriend Hall in 2013 has evolved into a Snack Pack at Godby High School and a mechanism to help sponsor 9 Leon County School food pantries, and underwrite the Hope 24/7 Food Locker monitoring fee at Sabal Palm Elementary.

A FULL SUMMER Snack Pack takes place on Saturday, June 1, at Godby High School from 10 AM – 12 PM. For two hours volunteers from all parts of our community come together to pack nutritious snacks for our local children. Second Harvest of the Big Bend then takes our snacks and distributes them to agencies that provide services to food-insecure children during the summer. You can sign up below to be part of this year’s event!

St. John’s has supported A FULL SUMMER with donations and volunteers since the beginning.  A FULL SUMMER would not exist without the church.  So, we invite you to join us again!

Slots fill up fast, so don’t wait to register!  Get your friends, small groups, Bible study, or anyone you’d like to spend a couple of hours with doing good while having fun!

No child should go hungry.  Together let’s do something to help children who struggle with hunger.
