Nourish One Child (NOC) is an outreach program of Keith Memorial United Methodist Church. The program was established to feed the many children in our local school system who were going hungry on the weekends. NOC is funded by grants and donations from church and community members. The program is spearheaded by Dixie Liner who organizes groups of volunteers to purchase, pack and deliver the food on a weekly basis.
► 250+ Athens City Schools students receive food bags each week during the school year
► 5 volunteers purchase food for the bags
► 2 volunteers coordinate the weekly menu for the bags
► 50+ volunteers pack bags throughout the school year
► 8 volunteers deliver the bags to the five Athens City Schools each week throughout the school year
► The program is funded through generous donations from the congregation of the Keith Church and community members and grant monies awarded by philanthropic organizations
