Keizer Community Food Bank
Keizer Clear Lake United Methodist joined with four other other Keizer churches in 2007 to form the Keizer Community Food Bank. Other churches participating in the Keizer Food Bank are: John Knox Presbyterian, Keizer Christian, Saint Edwards Catholic and Faith Lutheran. The Keizer Community Food Bank is an extension of Marion Polk Food Share/Oregon Food Bank .
Food distribution is Monday evenings from 6:00 to 7:30 at Faith Lutheran Church in Keizer. Keizer Clear Lake UMC staffs the distribution site the first Monday of each month. Over 40 people from Keizer Clear Lake Church have volunteered to staff the first Monday night of the month at the Food Bank.
Feed The Children
Feed the Children Ministry team would like to thank you all for your support of this ministry. We have been helping the Lake Labish teachers now since January and will be starting our food delivery in October. The teachers are very appreciative of our help. The Food Bank is generously donating a majority of our food, and along with your added donations we are continuing with this ministry. Feed the children ministry helps with weekend food needs of a group of 10-12 children in a very special needs classroom. We determined that this project fits well with the goals and vision of our congregation to be involved in our community in positive ways.
Some of our food will be supplied through the Keizer Community Food Bank. Some of the food will need to be purchased by us as a church. Every two weeks we will deliver food to the school to be distributed to these kids so that they have something to eat for the weekend. Your cash donations will help us buy food in quantities. You can also help by donating the following items:
Macaroni and Cheese
Spaghetti Noodles & Sauce
Non– Refrigerated Milk
Single Serve Goldfish Crackers
Fruit (apples & oranges)
Please do not put these items in the food bank collection barrels. All items for Feeding the Children should be put in the box marked for this purpose. The box will be located in the Fellowship Hall at church. Our January dates of food are the 8th and 22nd.
Thank you for your generous support and your prayers as we launch this new ministry to help children in our community with their hunger needs.
