The Tomball Lions Club presented the check of the $500 allocation by the club to help the Tomball Families Feeding Families provide Thanksgiving meals to families that would not otherwise have a hot Thanksgiving meal in the Tomball Community. The Tomball Lions were so blessed this year that they were able to double their allocation from last year with the funds provided by the Tomball Lions Club.
On November 23, 2011, the first Families Feeding Families event took place at Christ Bridge Fellowship. Over 500 meals were served to those that attended. Meals were taken to local nursing homes and volunteers ate with the attendees.
Families Feeding Families has become a holiday tradition for many families in our community, and continues to grow year after year.  It is anticipated that 1,800 will be served this year plus about 500 outbound meals for shut-ins and the homeless.  Budget for this year’s event is $32,000. The Tomball Lions Club is happy to partner with them in helping meeting the budget of this wonderful undertaking.  Around 400 volunteers help make this a successful event.  The Families Feeding Families event will take place on November 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 PM at Christ Bridge Fellowship, 29510 Texas 249 Tomball, TX.  Volunteers can apply at:
