Food Bank

Our church has opened up its doors to become a pick up point for food for those in our community needing a little extra help.  The church is partnering up with the United Way who identifies those particular individuals and families, and with the All Faiths Food Bank who supplies the food.  The groceries are then inventoried, packed and distributed at a certain date and time.  We need volunteers to help pick up the food, sort and pack, distribute, and greet those who come to the church for assistance.  An individual's time commitment to this volunteer opportunity is as little as a few hours a month.

Important!  Food pick up is once a month, on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

2012 dates: November 21 and December 19*.
N.B. please note that October's pick up is not available.

Food Bank Hours: 5:30pm-6:30pm.

For those needing assistance from one of United Way's many programs, including the Food Bank program, call 211 from any land line telephone.
