Feed the Need is a fundraiser event on Sep 24 in downtown Salem featuring local food trucks and family fun! Come purchase lunch from a variety of local food truck venders in a fun family atmosphere.


Did you know that hundreds of children in Salem go hungry on the weekends? Many children in our community rely on school lunches for nutrition and are often undernourished during the weekend.
One of the ways Outward Church seeks to meet this need is through our “Backpack Buddies” program. Each week during the school year we prepare bags with meal items to send home with dozens of elementary school students. These bags are given to kids on Fridays when they leave school, providing them with a basic source of nutrition over the weekend. In the 2016-2017 school year, we served over 1,000 meals!
100% of the tips and donations from Feed the Need will support this program and enable us to continue to serving our community in this way.
