The Grapevine Community Outreach Center is one of the host locations for the annual Feed Our Kids program, which was started by GRACE in 2005.
GRACE began the program to ensure children have healthy lunches during the summer, when they may not otherwise receive a midday meal. Various businesses and organizations host the meals by choosing a day to sponsor the food, then bringing lunch and sometimes games to their designated location.
On Wednesday, June 1, 2022, the Grapevine Police Department and Grapevine Community Outreach Center sponsored their annual Feed Our Kids day. In addition to providing lunches for 200 children, Community Outreach Manager Haydee Young arranged for yard games, a FroYo truck offering frozen yogurt, and fun giveaways from North Texas Ford.
The healthy meal and fun-loving atmosphere is just one way the Grapevine Community Outreach Center strives to support families in the neighborhood. All of the volunteers and police officers are appreciated for spending their time serving others.
