Lent, the 40 days before Easter, is a time set aside in the church for fasting, prayer, and generosity. To lean into the practice of generosity together, we are kicking off a food drive with the Ballard Food Bank. They are collecting food for kids who are not getting enough food on the weekends. Schools in Seattle provide meals for these students during the week, but there is a big gap left over on weekends. We want to help fill in that gap, starting February 21 and going to March 28.
We are collecting the following items (Note: we are only collecting the items listed below):
Annie's Vegan or Gluten Free Mac
Annie's Gluten Free Rice Pasta
Single Serve Vegan/Gluten Free/Dairy Free Entrees
Single Serve Applesauce
Almond and Soy Milk
You can drop off food at church on Sundays or at the cabinet just outside the Blue House during the week. Email Jen for more information.
