A Full Summer 2023

A FULL SUMMER is back!  An idea born of St. John’s “Visioning the Vineyard” strategic planning process is now celebrating its 10th year of service in summer 2023. Thank you, St. John’s!

A FULL SUMMER Snack Pack takes place on Saturday, June 3, at Godby High School from 10 AM until noon. For two hours, more than 250 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!

In addition to the Snack Pack, A FULL SUMMER sponsors nine Leon County School food pantries and pays the monitoring fee for the Hope 24/7 Food Locker located at Sabal Palm Elementary School. The Hope 24/7 Food Locker is temperature-controlled and is accessible 24 hours a day to members of our community who are food insecure.

A FULL SUMMER has also provided a refrigerator or freezer to each Leon County School food pantry giving children access to fresh and/or frozen meat, fruits, and vegetables.

A FULL SUMMER has reserved space for a St. John’s team at our 2023 event on June 3.  If you would like to be a St. John’s team member, please contact Laurye Messer.  You can have a great time with our church family while showing love for our youngest neighbors!
