As we seek to find our way in these strange times, that way is off balanced if we don’t also respond to our neighbors in need. I know many of you are already finding ways to do this. Here are some ways you can help via The Advocate.
Because we aren’t taking up our weekly food offerings on Sundays, we will be contributing to the food pantry at the Interfaith Council and at the Rogers/Eubanks Road Community Center every other Thursday for a while.
This week, the Advocate Garden yielded 2 1/2 gallon bags of sugar snap peas , one bag of chard, and 6 or so bags of lettuce, delivered to the IFC
Between now and June 3, we will be collecting food for the IFC food pantry. As you are out shopping pick up any of the following to donate. You can leave food donations in the Advocate Chapel bell tower.
- Canned meat (spam, tuna, salmon, vienna sausages)
- Pork and beans
- Baked beans
- Pinto beans
- Peanut butter
- Toilet paper
- Liquid soap
- Coffee/tea/hot chocolate
- Fresh or frozen chicken or turkey for take-out meals
- Olive oil and butter for take-out meal preparation
In the weeks ahead, we will once again collect food to assist the good people of the Rogers/Eubanks Neighborhood Association in collecting food for those in need in the neighborhood. They will supplement food donations with food purchased at discount in order to provide three meals to 250 different households.
