We have an opportunity to respond to the unprecedented surge in need at our local food banks. Emmaus will be collecting foodstuffs next week at two times:
- Wednesday, May 27, 5:30–7:30 pm
- Thursday, May 28, 9 am–12 pm
While many people have sent cash to Food for Lane County, they have received far fewer actual food donations, leaving many people eager to receive a diverse set of foods (see the attached list for Most Wanted Foods for ideas).
In order to keep everyone safe, we will have food barrels available during the above times at church for you to drop off food (we will be nearby to keep an eye on the donations, but not too near!). Please consider wearing a mask and maintain appropriate social distances. If you would like to participate but cannot drive by the church, please email Melinda or call during office hours and she will arrange for someone to come by (if you are willing to help with picking up food from individuals, please email Melinda as well).
Thanks so much!
