The gifts of food brought on Sunday mornings and the dollars directed by the Outreach Commission are used to feed the hungry in our community. The next time you are shopping for your family, we invite you to pick up a few staple items for those in our community who are hungry, and in some cases homeless.

Here are the statistics of those who came for food bags in January:
Households: 34
