Haven from Hunger – it’s time to fill the truck!

On Sunday, November 19, the truck from Haven from Hunger will be arriving during our Sunday worship service for our church to fill with groceries for replenishing their food pantry located in Peabody. If you are unable to bring groceries to church on 11/19, a bin will available during the preceding week in the church office. Non-perishables such as canned tuna, vegetables, soups, spaghetti sauce, seasonings, or gift certificates to local supermarkets will be most welcomed.
Haven from Hunger’s food pantry provides over 1,800 households with fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy, and canned goods. Last year, they distributed enough food for close to 600,000 meals.

In July 2017, Haven from Hunger merged with Citizens Inn, a nonprofit organization that provides a full spectrum of services to families and individuals on the North Shore experiencing a housing crisis or food insecurity. We will be hearing more about Citizens Inn and the merger from its Executive Director, Mr. Corey Jackson, during our worship service on November 19.

Our church has long been a supporter of Haven from Hunger. Please join the Board of Mission and Outreach in filling the pantry to overflowing for the upcoming holiday season.

Claudia Worth, on behalf of the Board of Mission and Outreach
