‘Hearts of Love’ FOOD DRIVE in July


Did you know?

About 1 in 5 children in our community face food insecurity
during non-school periods.

Hearts of LOVE Weekly Food Bags are designed to replace the meals and weekend food
children received during the COVID-19 BISD Meal Distribution and are distributed every Wednesday via a drive-thru service at St. John Lutheran Church.

This food drive will collect food that will help fill Hearts of LOVE Weekly Food Bags. We are asking for specific items. These can be dropped off at St. John in the Gathering Place throughout the month of July.

‘Hearts of Love’ Weekly Food Donations


To help meet the increased need and reach more children this summer, we have partnered with St. John Lutheran Church to provide a drive-thru/walk-up service for our Hearts of Love (HOL) Weekly Food Bags.

The FREE Hearts of LOVE Weekly Food Bags contain non-perishable food items & fresh fruit, and are designed to replace the meals and weekend food children of Boerne received during the COVID-19 BISD school closure.

  • Available to Boerne children age 2-18 who are eligible for the federal meal program, or whose situation may have changed during COVID-19.
  • One bag per child.
  • Quantities per car may be limited.
  • Bags are available first-come, first-serve.
  • Contents subject to change based on available food & funding.

These bags will contain 7 breakfast items, 7 lunch items, 7 pieces of fresh fruit, and daily snacks (all non-perishable except the fruit) designed to provide food for a child for one week (except dinner), replacing the free meals they receive while in school. We are working with Blessings in a Backpack and the Boerne ISD to ensure the parents/guardians of children who are now receiving BISD Meal Service are aware of the summer distribution at St. John Lutheran Church.  We hope to provide up to 300 HOL bags per week for 11 weeks of summer.  The cost to provide food for one week to a child facing food insecurity is roughly $15, or $165 for the entire summer!

While we love having families and younger children serve together, due to the COVID-19 restrictions and policies, our volunteers at this time will be limited to adults and high schoolers age 14+.  High school students can earn service hours, and we have opportunities for student leadership. If there are changes to the policy, or if there is a different opportunity for younger children, we will send specific volunteer information out via Signup Genius.
