GET INVOLVED IN OUR

FOOD MINISTRY

Serving from the Heart

THERE ARE MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE OTHERS IN THE FOOD MINISTRY

Volunteer to serve dinner to those in need through the meal program or help give local children a better chance at success by aiding in Backpack Buddies. 

Meal Program

Three times a month, we serve meals at our local Women's or Family Shelters.  

Volunteers are always welcome.

Please join us in providing nourishment for our nearby community!

Backpack Buddies

How you can help:

You are invited to join other members of Gresham United Methodist Church in addressing this important need by:

  1. Donating money. 

    • $120 will provide weekend meals for one child for the entire school year. 

    • $60 will provide packs for half the year. 

    • $13 will send home food parcels for a month. 

    • Checks payable to GUMC with Backpack Buddies in the memo area.

  2. Donating food. 

    • Through SnowCap we are able to purchase most of the food from the Oregon Food Bank at a considerable discount. Items most needed from donations are:

      • (a) milk in individual boxes that do not need to be refrigerated 

      • (b) individual fruit cups or fresh fruit, especially apples and oranges because they travel well.

  3. Sharing the work. 

    • Help will be needed to:

    *Pack the meals at SnowCap on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month.
    *Deliver to the children on one Friday each month. 
    *Willingness to deliver on a substitute basis.

  1. Spreading the word. 

    • Your neighbor or a friend may want to support a project that feeds hungry children.
