Hunger knows no season but for this season of Advent, we are asking you to help take the light of Christ out into the world by donating shelf stable foods. We are collecting food for the Broadmoor Food Pantry, which is a local community food bank that distributes food in our area. Each week of Advent we will highlight a different food item centered on the Advent candle for the week. Through Christmas, you can bring non-perishable items to the collection bins in Fellowship Hall, weekdays between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Items will be displayed as part of the Christmas Eve service.
Week of November 28: HOPE
Please bring CANNED MEATS and FISH which provide transportable protein to the hungry.
Week of December 5: LOVE
Please bring SOUP which is a complete and easy meal-in-one given to show our love to those who may be worried about being able to make a meal.
Week of December 12: JOY
Please bring PEANUT BUTTER which is another important source of protein that can last quite a while, bringing joy to full bellies!
Week of December 19: PEACE
Please bring MAC & CHEESE...Who doesn't love boxed mac & cheese? It's a simple side that kids and grownups gobble up.
Please bring BABY FOOD. As we celebrate Jesus' birth, we remember other babies in need.
Additional items especially appreciated include cereal, rice, pasta, canned fruit and vegetables, juice, diapers and feminine supplies.
