On first Sundays, CUCC collects donations for the Urban Ministries food pantry. You can either put your purchased items in the narthex box or make a donation here to allow Urban Ministries to supplement donated food.  We like Urban Ministries’ model for their pantry which focuses on providing healthy food (enough for a week); their goal is to have half of the food available be fresh vegetables and frozen meats.  Our job is to get healthy canned and boxed basics on the pantry shelves to supplement those.

Double bag, pleaseHere is the list of foods currently being requested by Urban Ministries to keep staples on their shelves.

We also collect empty, clean egg cartons which Urban Ministries uses to distribute the large batches of fresh eggs  which they receive.

For more information, contact Merrilee or Ken Jacobson who deliver our food to the food pantry.
