A community ministry coordinated by the Shenandoah Valley Lutheran Ministries and in partnership with Shenandoah County Public Schools, Luke's Backpack collects food for children who might otherwise have nothing to eat. Almost 50% of public school students in Shenandoah County qualify for free or reduced lunches and breakfasts--Luke's Backpack is a way of feeding qualifying students when they are home for the weekend.
The Women of the ELCA at Prince of Peace began collecting donations for the Luke's Backpack program in 2011, and our congregation has since become an enthusiastic supporter of this caring ministry. We receive donations in a box outside the pastor's office.
