NDG Food Bank: 2012 Campaign
There were clearly more groceries this year than in the past. There are ~200 boxes/crates of food sitting in our lower Hall. Another ~150 boxes/bags were loaded on a truck this afternoon and taken directly to the NDG Food Depot.
The sad reality is that this food will last the Food Depot only a few months. But they also received many cash donations, so that will certainly help.
We didn't raise a penny for SPC today, but we together we joined hands with our neighbours to put Matthew's gospel into practise:
"...for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me."
