Join the Fight!
Pick your team—North or South Lowell—and show your support for Food Fight 2019! Food Fight is our biggest annual fundraiser and runs April 22 through June 1, 2019. When you support Food Fight, your generosity reaches Lowell families in crisis every month who visit Flat River Outreach Ministry (FROM), but it’s not just about food. Your gift also funds employment assistance, home repairs, utility assistance, children’s programming, tax preparation, and other programs to help meet families in need.
The amazing support of the community in 2018 helped us serve
- Over 1,783 families in our food pantry
- 11,730 meals to kids over winter, spring and summer breaks
- 421 children with a backpack full of school supplies to start the school year off right
- 122 households with energy bill payment assistance
- 84 families with one-time financial assistance to help meet needs in a time of crisis or unexpected life event
New for 2019: Finding FROM events!
Finding FROM is a one hour event to show the community what FROM is doing, share how we are making an impact in the lives of our neighbors and give the community a “behind the scenes” tour of our building. Finding FROM is for those who are new to the community and want to know more about FROM, but it’s also for those who have been with us from the beginning and will allow us to share our vision for the future.
Finding FROM will be held weekly through the month of May on Thursdays during the afternoon and evening. Evening events will take place on May 2, 16, and 30 at 6:00 p.m and afternoon events will be held May 9, 23, and 30 at noon. No RSVP required. Plan to attend a Finding FROM event today!
