Food Ministry Update – June 2020

By Bonnie Ruekgauer

Despite limitations due to coronavirus restrictions, UUCWC’s Food Ministry has continued to fulfill its mission of feeding those in need.

Since we cannot use the church kitchen for cooking, we have decided to use our resources to support other organizations which provide meals. During the month of May, we donated $400 from the Rollie Rahn Memorial Fund to El Centro, an organization which helps to meet basic needs of the Spanish-speaking community in the Trenton area. For June, a similar amount from the Rollie Fund has been donated to TASK (Trenton Area Soup Kitchen). In addition, we assembled 90 nutrition bags (fruit cup, juice box, microwavable meal, granola bar) for Luther Arms, a senior low income housing facility in Trenton for which we would normally be cooking a meal once a month.

We eagerly look forward to the time we can be back in our own church kitchen – probably after the renovation.

Many thanks to the members of UUCWC for your ongoing support!!
