The Backpack Program was created to break the cycle of hunger and food insecurity for children in low-income communities by providing them with healthy nutritious food that are easy-to-prepare, to take home on weekends or extended holidays throughout the school year when other resources are not available.

Sedgefield Presbyterian Church and Hinshaw UMC, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC and Interfaith Shuttle, sponsor a Cooking Matters program in our neighborhood. We currently offer at least three 6-week courses per year for economically challenged members of our community. Participants learn about nutrition, cooking, and grocery shopping for healthy meals on a tight budget. Our next class series will meet from 6:00-8:00pm on Thursday, Sept 14, 21, 28 & Oct 12, 19, 26.
