Blessing Box – Free Little Food Pantry
FOUMC is proud to sponsor and maintain a Blessing Box of food items in conjunction with Alliance Community Pantry for those in need in our local area (located in front of the fellowship hall facing Church St. beside the Little Free Library). The pantry is stocked at least weekly with nourishing items for anyone to come by 24/7 and retrieve what they need. The congregation donates canned items, fresh breads, and toiletries and the Missions Team ensures those items make their way to the pantry as needed. The pantry is stocked with mostly tab top cans that can be easily opened and eaten by those in need, often without the need for cooking. It also supplies item that need to be cooked and some other basic ingredients that go into making a meal at home.
