FOOD DRIVE - OCTOBER 25TH
For more than 20 years, Faith Lutheran Church has been supporting the University District Food Bank with fall and spring food and cash drives to support their ongoing work of feeding our hungry neighbors.
Despite the fact that for many the Seattle economy is booming, for others the daily challenge of food insecurity is all too real. Food banks report that despite several years in a row of an improving economy, the demand for food is greater than ever. Statistics show that for every $100 increase in rent in Seattle, the number of homeless citizens increases by 15%. Even after all these years, the need for all of us to dig in and help feed the hungry is greater than ever. Our goal as a caring congregation is 100% participation by all members and regular attendees.
Stay tuned for more information about what the food bank really needs, and plan to bring as much food and/or a generous cash donation to the church on Sunday, October 25. "That you did to the least of these, my brethren, you did also to me."
