Hungry Bags

Several times a year, members of the Waitsfield Church fill “Hungry Bags” with items currently needed at the local community food shelf.  Regular brown grocery bags are distributed with lists of needed items stapled to the outside. A couple of weeks later the food is brought forward (often over 40 bags full!) during worship, blessed and then the Hungry Bags are delivered to the food shelf.  Items being sought include:

  • baking items,
  • canned foods,
  • personal hygiene items,
  • paper products, and other non-perishable goods such as:
    • Flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, raisins
    • Canned fruits in lite syrup or natural juices
    • Canned vegetables
    • Pasta sauce, not in glass containers
  • Personal care items like:
    • shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste
  • Brown rice
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned soups

If you miss one of our designated collection Sundays, contact the Church office at 496-3065 and ask where you can deliver your donations.
