Easy Way to Help Hungry Families

We have an easy opportunity to live out our faith and help families that are in need. Capital Area Food Bank helps families across our whole region and we can help them out. You'll see a big white box in our building next to the door to the worship area. Any week (or every week) you can drop off some food to help supply the food bank. All you do is drop it in the box - we'll take it from there. What food should I collect?

  • healthy, non-perishable food

  • items with intact, un-opened consumer or commercial packaging

  • items with non-breakable packaging (no glass please)

  • food within the expiration date on the packaging

What items do clients request most?

  • peanut butter

  • canned chicken breast or tuna

  • canned low sodium vegetables

  • canned fruit in its own juice (no sugar added)

  • dry pinto beans

  • brown rice

  • non-fat dry milk powder

  • 100% whole grain cereal
