One by one, feet shuffled down a makeshift assembly line of snacks Friday morning in the sanctuary of First United Methodist Church in Gillette.

Busy hands of more than 30 volunteers reached for various snack items as they worked to fill 400 snack bags to feed area children who may be in need of a snack while at school, especially with WY-TOPP testing scheduled for next week.
