Turning the Tables on Hunger
FIRST SUNDAY OF THE MONTH (except 2nd Sunday in Sept): Put a note on your calendar for the first Sunday of each month (when communion is served) to remember to bring non-perishable food items with you to church. We collect non-perishable food at each of our three services in large red garbage cans located in front of the Sanctuary. Throughout the services the cans are emptied into a storage room by a crew of Junior High youth where the food is stored until Monday.
'SOUPER' BOWL SUNDAY: On the first Sunday in February the emphasis is on donating soup.
SUGGESTIONS FOR DONATIONS: Most needed are protein-rich foods (soups, stews, chili, peanut butter, canned meat like tuna, chicken or ham). Also needed are powdered milk, cereal, and canned vegetables and fruits.
BAG BRIGADE: At 9 a.m. on the Monday following each food drive, volunteers from our church community put the collected items into bags so the donations can be picked up and taken to the Sunnyvale Community Services warehouse for distribution to hungry people.
"BUY 1 GET 1 FREE": Consider taking advantage of every sale and 2-for-1 deal while doing your own shopping, giving half to our food drive.
