The Tomball Lions Club presented the check of the $900 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. On November 24, 2021, 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. She has been actively involved with this group since its initial event on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving on November 23, 2011. Since Families Feeding Families' Inaugural event, each year has set a new record for attendance and people served. Outreach has been extended to homeless and elderly shut-ins. Participants are now able to receive a flu shot and receive information on how to get help from local resource groups.
Families Feeding Families has become a holiday tradition for many families in our community, and continues to grow year after year. Free haircuts, face painting, and children's activities
​combined with goodie bags have been a big hit!! It is anticipated that over 2,000 will be served this year at both Salem & Trinity Lutheran churches plus around 300 outbound meals for shut-ins and the homeless.  Budget for this year’s event is over $50,000. 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 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 PM at Salem Lutheran Church Community Center, 22601 Lutheran Church Rd, Tomball, Texas and Trinity Lutheran Church on 5201 Spring Cypress road, Spring, Texas.
