our Parish Nurse, Shira, for a book discussion of Can You Drink the Cup? by Henri Nouwen, on Wednesdays at noon beginning on March 4th (March 4, 11, 18, 25). Come have lunch, hosted by Loaves and Fishes, and bring your copy of the book.
For more than 30 years, Minnesota FoodShare has coordinated the March Campaign, the annual grassroots food and fund drive that provides more than half the food distributed by 300 food shelves throughout the state. The March Campaign is the only statewide effort where every dollar donated goes directly to food shelves to purchase food for the hungry.
Here is how you can contribute at Brooklyn UMC. Bring your donations to the big FoodShare Box in the front of the sanctuary. All food needs to be non-perishable. Our focus foods are as follows, but any food is welcome!
Our goal is 2,000 pounds. Help us meet this goal. It’s a worthy cause for our neighbors.
