Food has always been a challenge for some people, but now with this pandemic people are suffering more. People have reported feeling insecure about their food, to where 80% of African Americans have reported, 70% of Hispanics have reported, over 50% of other races have reported insecurities. This is absurd to think about because there is more than enough food to feed everyone on the planet, yet worldwide about 690 million people go to bed hungry each night.
We can help the people that are struggling with food shortages. HAUMC is planning on preparing a food drive to help others, but you could help by sacrificing going out to eat at a restaurant and eat at home and use that money to donate. Also you could save your coins and pocket change and with time donate it and make a difference in the world.
We'll be taking donations throughout the month of March to help stock the Groveland Food Shelf to keep it working for those in need.
If you want to drop off donations, we will have bins available in the East Wing of the church, March 1-26, Monday through Friday between 9am and 4pm.
Need to send your donations in? Just use this convenient link to order from Amazon, and your items will be delivered to HAUMC.
