In cooperation with Tallmadge High School FCCLA, Dare to Share distributes food bags each Friday to students throughout the school district. During the school year volunteers from the church run the lunches from the High School to the Middle schools and the Elementary schools. During the summer volunteers pack up and deliver lunches to school children.
