MOBILE MEALS MINISTRY
Our “Emergency Food Kits” have been a big success for the last two years because of the love and generosity of the people in our Church Family. Now that winter is approaching, we are asking for your help once again. In order that none of our clients go without food, because we are unable to deliver du to bad weather, we will be preparing “Emergency Food Kits” again this year. These kits will consist of non-perishable food items for two to three meals. We have 53 clients, 13 of those clients are diabetic. Please help us with these kits by donating some of the items below.
We will be collecting food items starting Dec 17 through Dec 31. There will be a collection box in the Narthex marked “Mobile Meals Emergency Food Kits”.
Items needed are: Canned Soups, canned ravioli, canned meats (i.e. tuna, chicken, ham), Cup ‘O’ Noodles, microwaveable macaroni and cheese cups, packaged peanut butter or cheese crackers, fruit cups, pudding cups, individually packaged cookies, Ensure, or any non-perishable food item that can be eaten cold or easily heated. Please remember some of the desserts need to be sugar free for our diabetic clients.
Your donations will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please contact Dottie Tucker at 610-6959 or 919-4589 (cell).
