Feb 4 = Souper Bowl of Caring!
Please bring donations of nonperishable food and donations of cash or check for our Souper Bowl of Caring – 9:30 to 11:15 a.m. this Sunday, Feb. 4, at PEACE Lutheran Church.
ONE WORSHIP SERVICE – We will have one service at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 4.
Before and after the 10 a.m. service, y
oung people from PEACE will be just outside the Sanctuary to accept your donations. Please, be generous! (We promise you’ll be home in time for Super Bowl kick-off!)
All contributions benefit Interfaith Food Ministry, our local food pantry. IFM serves nearly 7,800 people in 2017, including more than 2,000 children. Volunteers that year — including folks from PEACE — packed nearly 102,000 grocery bags stuffed with fresh fruits and vegetables, nutritious staples and a few special “goodies” for our neighbors in need.
Youth @ PEACE is our youth group. Every February, we participate in a nationwide campaign to support local food pantries. It’s called Souper Bowl of Caring, and it’s timed to the Super Bowl.
The original idea was, if everyone who watches the Super Bowl would give just $1 to support a local food pantry, we could go a long way toward “tackling hunger” in our communities.
Youth @ Peace has been collecting Souper Bowl donations for nearly 20 years. Last year the generous people of PEACE broke our records by giving $1,995 and donating 81 food items!
This year, help us to break that record AGAIN! Our goal: Top $2,000 in donations and 100 food items for IFM!
Our collection will be sent directly to Interfaith Food Ministry, in Grass Valley. PEACE is one of about 20 area faith congregations that supports IFM with volunteer labor and financial and food donations.
Across the country, more than $9.5 million was collected in 2017 and donated to local food pantries!
