Easter Outreach Idea for All Ages: Food to Spare

Just as Jesus told Peter to “feed [his] lambs,” kids will do just that for their community in this Easter outreach idea.

Scripture: John 21:4-6, 12-13, 15-17

You’ll need:

  • Bible
  • small, clean plastic jars
  • jelly beans
  • colorful paper
  • hole punch
  • markers
  • ribbons

Easter Outreach Idea: Food to Spare

In the weeks leading up to this Easter outreach project, collect small, clean jars and remove labels.


Gather your kids and say: After Jesus came back to life, he appeared to his disciples. He even made them breakfast!

Ask: Tell about a time you were really hungry.

Read John 21:4-6, 12-13.

Say: Then Jesus told Peter how to show that he really loved Jesus. Read John 21:15-17.

Ask: Tell about a time you shared food with someone. 

Say: There are people in our town who’d love us to share food or treats with them. And we can show Jesus’ love by feeding his lambs a special Easter treat—jelly beans!

For this Easter outreach, have kids fill the jars with jelly beans and write notes or poems on colorful paper. Punch a hole in the corner of each card and string a piece of ribbon through the hole. Tie one note around each jar just underneath the lid. Give the goodies to a local food pantry to be distributed along with Easter food baskets, or have kids take them home to give to neighbors as an Easter outreach.
