Join us this Sunday for a Souper Bowl of Caring hosted by the young people of Discovery. After morning worship we will enjoy a lunch together of homemade soups (chicken tortilla, minestrone, butternut squash, vegetable, and lentil), bread, and dessert as a celebration of our offerings for those who are hungry this Super Bowl Sunday. Last year Discovery raised $160 at our Souper Bowl party. This year they have a new challenge for you!
In studying social justice issues related to food waste, they discovered that the greatest source of food waste is not from schools, or hospitals, or even restaurants. It is from our own homes. On average 25% of the food bought in groceries stories and taken home is wasted, whether dinners are not finished, leftovers are not eaten, or food expires before we eat it. Discovery challenges you not only to reduce the amount of food waste in your home, but in honor of this national average, to consider donating 25% of your groceries this week to our Souper Bowl Challenge. If you buy four bags of groceries a week, consider bringing in one bag of groceries to church this Sunday.
Discovery will offer our donations to the Narberth Food Pantry.
Here are items that they particularly need this week:
Healthy cereals (no sweet cereals such as Fruit Loops or Frosted Flakes)
Toothpaste (regular sized tubes, not travel size)
They do not need toilet paper or canned vegetables at this time.
Miguel has set our goal at 50 bags of food. We like to think big, because we are ready to make a big difference in this world.
Thank you for your constant support of our work together!
