Reverse Advent Food Drive
December 3, 2018 - January 7, 2019
ADVENT FOOD DRIVE 2018 – Cherry Log Christian Church, Disciples of Christ
Please join us this year during the Advent Season to help feed our neighbors. Take a box in the Fellowship Hall and add each of the items below each week to the box and then bring it either Sunday before Christmas or before the first of the 2019 year. Let do our part to help the Food Pantries in Gilmer and Fannin Counties.
WEEK 1: HOPE December 2-8, 2018
During this week of Advent, we HOPE that hunger can be ended in this world. Georgia currently has over 1 million people who are food insecure, which is about 15% of our population. (source: Feeding America Meal Gap)
Add 4 cans (18 oz) of Campbell’s Chunky Soup that eats like a meal.
Add 8 cans (14 oz) of Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and Meatballs or Ravioli.
WEEK 2: PEACE December 9-15, 2018
During this week of Advent, we pray for PEACE so that organizations that help people who are starving around the world can get to them before more children starve to death.
Add 4 cans (12.5 oz) of Great Value Chunk Chicken Breast that gives families the protein they need to stave off malnutrition.
WEEK 3: JOY December 16-22, 2018
During this week of Advent, we are JOYFUL for all the opportunities we have to help our neighbors through our Garden for Others, Clothes Closet, and many other Outreach opportunities. Let us be joyful as we add food to our box for our local food banks in Gilmer and Fannin County.
Add 2 boxes of Hamburger Helper (14 oz), a box of whole wheat Spaghetti (1 lb), and Ragu Garden Sauce (24 oz).
WEEK 4: LOVE December 23-29, 2018
During this week of Advent, we share the LOVE that Jesus taught us to share with our neighbors, by including at OUR TABLE, our Guatemalan friends at Tower Road, people who are homeless in our community, and children, who’s families cannot afford to provide food for their table without the help of the food banks.
Add 2 bags of BeNut Peanuts – We want to share our love with those that benefit from our generosity.
