Caring Cupboard Has A New Home
The Caring Cupboard of The United Methodist Church in Washington has moved into a new space in the church. The storage room next to the nursery was cleared out to make way for shelving and food. This change in space will make it much easier for our Volunteers (no more steps!), Church Members who use the back door on Sunday mornings (it's right next to the Caring Cupboard) and staff (easier to grab food when it's just down the hall). The community need for food continues to grow.
Please consider making a donation of any of the items on this list.
With a couple of exceptions, all of them are on sale this week at ShopRite. (The brand names on the list are the ones that are on sale. We're not fussy about brands, but love a good bargain.) If you go to SAM's club, they have the best price right now on Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and Campbell's Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken soup.
This is the list of what will go in each family's food bags. Sometimes we receive others items as well. They will be added to supplement this list. This bag will feed a family of four for several days. We have started including recipes for "what's in the bag" with each set of bags we give a family.
