Friend, Can You Spare Some Food?
The difficult economy has left cupboards and food pantries bare – including Ascension’s food pantry. If you are in a position to help, we ask you to consider the following suggestions the next time you go to the grocery store:
Clip those coupons and don’t forget to look online for them, too. What you save on your shopping you can share with others.
Don’t overlook those deals -“buy one, get one free” means you can buy one for yourself and get one free to give to the food pantry.
Buy the store brand or look for special sales. Pick up one item that you don’t need but someone else does. Bring it to church and place it in the Manna box in the Narthex.
Calling all Costco shoppers! If you are buying in bulk, maybe you don’t need all that canned chicken, tuna or vegetables. Bring a few items to share – it won’t go to waste!
Help us keep the food pantry stocked year round!
Every month we will highlight Pantry Products that are needed for Ascension’s Food Pantry. While doing your weekly shopping, please help others by picking up the monthly food Pantry Products and placing them in the MANNA box in the church narthex. Together we can help feed our community!
(Note: Our Food Pantry is open to the community on Fridays, from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m..)
