The goal of this mission project is to receive the equivalent of 152 lbs. of food
– actual food or cash donations – for one year from our church family. The food and
monetary donations will be given to the Harry Chapin Food Bank in memory of Alan
Byerly, who died this past February. He volunteered countless hours at the food bank.
Note: A $1.00 cash donation to the Harry Chapin Food Bank buys 6 lbs. of food. Thus,
approximately $25.30 in cash donations each week would allow us to reach our goal.
As of June 12th, we have already contributed enough money to purchase 11,367 lbs.
of food - that 5.7 tons. The food will be distributed by Harry Chapin Food Bank to
ministries and agencies in our area that operate food pantries and other food programs.
The project will helps feed the hungry in our community and enables us to respond
faithfully to Jesus’ call to feed the “least of these.”
