Food Drive for Monterey County

Food-Bank-Logo0In today’s world, people are becoming more and more dependent on the resources around them. One of these resources is Shoreline’s own food pantry which helps feed about 50 people a month on average. This food pantry is stocked by the Food Bank of Monterey County who is in need of food donations from the surrounding community. Through the end of November, Community Outreach is holding a food drive to help our friends at the Food Bank of Monterey County so they can help us. They are in need of various items including powdered milk, canned/dried fruit, canned vegetables, beef stew and many more items. For a complete list of food needed and to donate, please go to the donation bins in the lobbies both downstairs and upstairs.

Hope & Benevolence-Community Outreach kicks off Food Pantry

On February 21, 2009, in Community Outreach, by CommunityOutreach

food-pantry-for-webStarting in March, Shoreline Community Church will become an official food pantry for The Food Bank for Monterey County. The Food Bank is part of America’s Second Harvest Food Bank. The Food Bank believes, as do we, the effects of the downturn in the economic situation in our area are greatly impacting many in our community and will continue to do so.  Did you know the Food Bank of Monterey County serves over 50,000 monthly? More people than ever before will need our help in these difficult times.  During the 2006-2007 fiscal year they served 36,218 households through the Emergency Food Assistance Program alone. In 2007-2008, they served 55,964 households, an increase of 54%. We at Shoreline want to be able to help our community  stretch those food dollars.  In March and April we are going to conduct another food and basic needs drive to help stock our pantry  (along with being able to stock from the food bank).  Every month we are having a drive of some kind. When you pack up for church on Sundays, please remember how you can help so many by bringing in your items for the less fortunate. Please give as generously as you can. These are just some of the items we would like to collect:

  • Detergents, soaps, toiletries
  • Diapers (all sizes)
  • Diaper Wipes
  • Towels, Wash Clothes
  • New underwear & socks (adults and kids) for our clothes closet

Small appliances and furniture, please call the church or contact dfederico@shorelinechurch.org or jatwell@shorelinechurch.org. Also we are looking for a refrigerator for our food pantry. Thank you so much as you continue to share your blessings.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.  I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink.  I was sick and you looked after me.  I was in prison and you came to visit me. Matthew 25:35-36
