Pay it Forward: First Baptist Church in Quanah

QUANAH - The school year started this morning in Quanah, and as students head back to class. their school will fill up their minds and stomachs.

But during the summer those meals can be harder to come by, but a local church spent their summer making sure no one went hungry.

Tina Edwards is on the road again delivering fresh meals to the kids of Quanah.

The parents appreciate it because somebody during the middle of the day checks in on their kids," Member of First Baptist Church Quanah Edwards said.

The kids know her by name, and they know their favorite meals were made with love and care at First Baptist Church.

"We saw the need of hungry children, and we can't stand it," Edwards said.

The work starts around 8 a.m. each day, and shifts of volunteers cycle in throughout the morning.

From the bag stuffers, to the chefs, to drivers like Tina.

"If they can't get here to get their food, we're going to take it to them," Edwards said.

During the summers the program feeds around 75 kids each day regardless of age, income level or church affiliation, making sure kids who can't cook for themselves get the nutrition they need.

"I'm glad she does it," Lunch Recipient Angel Hope said. "Sometimes my mom goes to work and we can't cook on the stove so it's nice that she brings it to us."

"It's a blessing for us and the kids enjoy it," Parent Summer Carrigo said. "They enjoy seeing Tina every day, and for them to volunteer their time and get out into our community every day. It's just wonderful."

That's why Domain Realty is paid it forward to First Baptist in Quanah so they can restock and reload before next summer's rush.

"They're the future of our community," Edwards said. "They're the future of our church. They're the future of our world, and we have to make sure they're healthy now."
