Various United Methodist churches in the county are taking turns providing these snacks. The United Methodist Church has a set of Social Principles that speak to human issues in the contemporary world where they believe they have a responsibility to promote community in ways that will encourage development of the fullest potential in individuals. Because they believe that every person has the right to education and that the responsibility for education rests not only with the family and government but also with the faith communities, they thought this local mission would exemplify encouragement of our non-traditional campus students’ potential.
Most students at McCurtain County Branch Campus take classes and work so meals are often from fast food services or snack machines. These churches want to bring a little bit of community to the students.
