Greenwood District – Summer Food Drive


Many of our neighbors live in a constant food desert and it is our responsibility as followers of Jesus to care for them. The Greenwood District has challenged everyone (churches, individuals and families, Sunday School classes, UWF circles, UMM groups, youth groups) to participate.

Staples such as peanut butter, canned soups and vegetables, cereal, canned meats, bottled juices, shelf-stable milk are always needed. Personal items are also needed, such as feminine products, diapers, soap, shampoo, lotion, toothpaste.

Our Summer Food Drive began June 19 and continues through July.  We are asking churches to keep a tally of the amount of food collected and send that information to the district office by August 5. Let us know the name of the food pantry/food bank that received your contributions. Ways to tally your collections are

– Number of pounds; or

– Tally of individual items. Ex: 100 cans of vegetables; 125 cans of soup; 10 5-lb. bags of sugar, etc.

At our Set-up Meeting on August 11, we will celebrate the amount of food collected to benefit our neighbors in the Greenwood District.

A Greenwood District pastor remarked about this food drive “You can make a difference! You can make the world a little better, a little healthier, and a little happier, especially for the elderly and for children.”
