Edward Best Elementary

Good News Club: Mondays 2:45-4:30

Food Ministry

In an effort to be more involved in our community, Red Bud partners with Edward Best Elementary in order to help the school meet their goal of educating children. Each Friday bags of food are sent home with students who are thought to not have enough food to eat during the weekends.


Anyone wanting to help with this can put together a plastic bag of non-perishable food items (1 bag per child with enough food for that 1 child for the weekend). 


Examples of food to include would be juice boxes, applesauce, jell-o, Spaghetti-Os, single-serving size fruit and vegetables, crackers, beanie-weenies, rice, granola bars, pop-tarts, Mac & Cheese, etc. 


If you would prefer to buy in bulk and donate several of one item (e.g., several cans of soup), these items would be taken to the school and they would make up their own bags to send home with other donated bulk items.
