Sadly, the Little Food Pantry that is located on the corner of 23rd and Harris has been vandalized repeatedly in the past year. Burrito Brigade has offered us a new Pantry to replace the much repaired and now shaky existing pantry.
The Social Justice and Witness committee is proposing to move the Pantry to a spot off of 23rd Street, just east of the church’s upper parking lot next to University Park. We hope this will reduce vandalism and continue to offer easy access to people who are seeking food. If you have any concerns, please contact Val Close or Vic Mann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Food Pantry is a small, freestanding shelter where food is donated by those who are able and food is taken each week by many people in need. FCC volunteers have generously stepped up to help keep the pantry cleaned up and in good order.
Members of the congregation, friends and neighbors are invited to help keep the pantry stocked. Food donations should be easy to heat or can sit in the pantry for days without spoiling. Examples of helpful donations include canned foods like soups and beans, peanut butter, easily cooked pasta or ramen, fresh apples or other produce, and even hygiene products. Stop by the pantry, open the door, and place your items inside.
