THANKSGIVING

Next Sunday we are celebrating Harvest Thanksgiving.  Let us make it a banner year with a great collection of non-perishable food for Sources, and a special collection this year of fresh fruit and vegetables.

HARVEST THANKSGIVING

This special feast falls on October 8th.  For many years we have expressed our thanksgiving in a very tangible form.  We collect as much non-perishable food as we can to support the wonderful work of Sources, our local food bank.  Start collecting now!

Top Ten Needed Food Items:

  1. Large cans of powdered Baby Formula
  2. Canned Fish/Meat (e.g. tuna, ham, turkey)
  3. Healthy Cereal (Hot or Cold)
  4. Meals in a Tin (e.g. Pork n’ Beans or Stew)
  5. Canned Vegetables
  6. Canned Fruit
  7. Wholegrain Pasta/Rice
  8. Pasta Sauces
  9. Canned and Dry Soups
  10. Mac & Cheese

This year we’d also like to focus on providing much-needed fresh fruit and vegetables as well, so we’ll be having a special collection – please do try to bring one or two fresh items for our baskets on this Sunday!
