Money raised from the festival will support the church’s Help Hungry Kids program, which sends food home in backpacks to children over the weekend. Proceeds will also benefit Floris UMC’s student missions, which will send church youth to Winchester, Va., Romney, W. Va., Costa Rica and Memphis, Tenn., this summer.
