Langley Central Proudly Serves
Langley Central’s Story
United Churches of Langley members along with community volunteers and teachers/students from Brookswood Secondary School sort, pack and deliver 46 backpacks to six elementary schools each week when school is in session. When school is not in session (i.e. Summer, Christmas and Spring Break) gift certificates are provided.
It cost approximately $675 per year to feed a child every weekend. Our program is supported by the United Churches of Langley Social Justice and Outreach Program and a generous donation from the Shewan Foundation.
Each pack provides enough food for two breakfasts, two lunches, two dinners, fresh fruits and snacks for the weekend.
“There are many reports that state starting the day with a healthy, well-balanced meal has a significant effect on academic success. The work done by the local Starfish group has been greatly appreciated by our staff, students and families.” Gord Stewart – Langley School District Superintendent
