The church also collects specific items each month to be given to the pantry. In
October the goal was to collect 125 packaged condiments.
In November the church is collecting 125 packages of pasta and sauces
The church is also continuing its weekly "Food for Thought Project." Food is
purchased from Kroger at cost, and food bags are assembled by church members
then delivered to a local school where teachers put the food bags in student
lockers to assure the student has nourishing food for the weekend. Eaton
