This ministry hands out up to 400 bags of groceries to needy families in our community. Each bag is worth around $30 and is supplied by gracious donations from our members, as well as discounted purchases from the food bank and local grocery stores. The program is run solely by volunteers.
Bags of Groceries are handed out at the church on Saturday Mornings 9:00 am to 12:00 pm (noon). No Food Distribution during the week. Contact Lutheran Social Services (Ninth and Lampson) for midweek food distribution.
A bag of groceries is available once a month to those bringing a valid ID with them. One bag per household per month. The bags are pretty heavy so if you have problems lifting-please bring along someone to help you out.
There are also bags for those without a way to cook or prepare. Ask for one if that is your need.
