The Feed the Children ministry helps with weekend food for a group of 10-12 special needs children at Lake Labish Elementary. The Food Bank, along with donations from our church family, support this program.
Every two weeks Keizer Clear Lake UMC delivers food to the school so that some of the special needs students will have something to eat over the weekend. You can 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 at church. All items for "Feeding the Children" should be put in the box marked for this purpose.
For more information about Feed the Children contact the church office at: 503-393-2402
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 ofMarion 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.
